This species is known from Amazonian Ecuador, below 600m asl. It probably occurs more widely, and perhaps also in neighbouring countries.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits Eastern Cordillera real montane forest and Napo moist forests in the Eastern Tropical Altitudinal Zone. At Santa Cecilia, although it was found in a wide variety of habitats including clearings, banana groves, swamps, and primary forest, most individuals were in secondary growth forest, where they were found on low vegetation at night. It is a larval developer.
It is a locally abundant species.
Agriculture, both crops and livestock, as well as logging, are major threats to the species’ habitat.
Its range includes Parque Nacional Yasuni and Reserva Biólogica Limoncocha.
