From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

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.

Population

It is a common frog in undisturbed habitats.

Population Trend

Decreasing

Major Threats

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.

Conservation Actions

Some populations lie within the El Avila, Macarao and Henri Pittier and Rancho Grande National Parks.
