From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality of "Nauta" (Cope 1874), which has traditionally been thought to be in Amazonian Peru in Loreto Department. However, it is far from certain that the type locality is in Peru, and it is more likely that this species comes from Panama.

Habitat and Ecology

This is possibly a lowland moist forest species that presumably breeds by larval development, but it is not known where the adults deposit the larvae.


The population status and trend of this species is unknown.

Major Threats

The major threats are not known.

Conservation Actions

Conservation Actions
This species is not known from any protected areas. 
Conservation Needed
It is included in Appendix II of CITES, in which trade must be controlled in order to avoid utilization incompatible with the species' survival

Research Needed
Research on taxonomy, population status, ecology and threats is required.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing doubts as to its taxonomic validity as well as absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence (EOO), status and ecological requirements.

Taxonomic Notes

The taxonomic status of this species is uncertain, and the type specimen has been lost. It is may belong to Allobates, as its first finger is greater than the second finger which is a characteristic of the genus, if the species is confirmed to belong to Dendrobatoidea (J. Brown pers. comm. 2017) but further studies are required.
