From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known with certainty from Amazonas State, Venezuela. There are also specimens reported from Belem, in Para State, Brazil, although these are thought to be misidentifications, so are not considered valid for this assessment. This species is expected to occur more widely and has been recorded under 300m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This species is usually found around temporary waterbodies in tropical rainforest or in forest edges surrounding tepuis. The eggs and larvae develop in water.

Population

It is very rare.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

The lowland areas where this species occurs might be threatened in the future by the expansion of human settlements. However, at present, this species is probably not significantly threatened.

Conservation Actions

It occurs within Parque Nacional Duida-Marahuaca, which is also a sacred area for the indigenous people.

Taxonomic Notes

The specimens from Brazil are probably misidentifications and are more likely to be Scinax trilineatus (Hoogmoed pers. comm.).
