From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known from Mount Roraima, in Bolívar State, eastern Venezuela, close to the border with Guayana Esequiba, at altitudes between 1,800 and 1,950m asl. It potentially has a wider range since it is found on the mountain slopes as well.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs on rocks covered by mosses and on moist soils, in areas with very low light intensity and abundant decaying vegetation in humid lower montane forest. Its breeding habits are unknown, although it probably lays eggs on the forest floor and the adults then carry the larvae to streams where they develop further, as with other species of the genus.

Population

The population status of this species is not known, although it is possibly rare.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

The major threats to this species are avalanches and the disturbance of its habitat by tourists.

Conservation Actions

It is found within Parque Nacional Canaima, in which Mount Roraima is one of the protected tepuis.
