It is found in both oak and pine forests, where animals have been recorded perched on bromeliads, on leaves and occasionally in the leaf-litter. It is more abundant in native forest than restored (30 year old oak) forest. It is presumed to be a direct developing species.
It is a common species.
The threats to this species are not known. It is currently only known from within a protected area, but it is likely to be impacted by forest loss if it occurs more widely.
The Santuario de Fauna y Flora Guanentá Alto Río Fonce is the only protected area from which it is currently known.
