For Red List information on this species, see the IUCN species account.
From the IUCN Red List Species Account:
This species is known from the southern slopes of the central part of Cordillera de la Costa, and Serranía del Interior, in the Venezuelan coastal range, at elevations between 1,200 and 1,800m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs along streams, and is usually found on overhanging vegetation up to 2m above the stream. The eggs are laid on the upper and under sides of leaves, and when hatched the larvae fall into the stream below where they develop further.
It is a common frog in undisturbed habitats.
The major threat is habitat loss, due to agriculture (both crops and livestock), logging, and infrastructure development for human settlement. Agricultural pollution is also having an impact on populations.
Some populations lie within the El Avila, Macarao and Henri Pittier and Rancho Grande National Parks.
