Habitat and Ecology
It occurs in lowland primary and secondary rainforests, and sub-Andean forests, on vegetation next to streams. It lays its eggs on the lower surface of leaves and when hatched the larvae fall into the stream below.
It is a very common species.
Localized threats to this species are habitat fragmentation and loss due to the expansion of agriculture, including the cultivation of illegal crops, and water pollution.
Its range includes Parque Nacional de Las Orquídeas and Parque Nacional Natural Farallones de Cali in Colombia, and Parque Nacional Darién in Panama.
