This species is known only from the type locality near the headwaters of the Orinoco River, at a place called Pista Constitución (2° 13' 49''N; 63° 20' 00''W) in Amazonas Department, Venezuela, in the vicinity of Cerro Delgado Chalbaud, at 670m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs in tropical rainforest. Its breeding habits are unknown, although it probably lays eggs on the forest floor and adults carry the larvae to the stream where they develop further, as with other species of the genus.
The population status of this species is not known.
Gold mining is a major threat to this species' habitat.
Some populations lie within the Reserva de Biosfera Alto Orinoco-Casiquiare, and Parque Nacional Parima-Tapirapecó, but measures are needed to stop the illegal mining that is destroying the forests at the type locality and polluting the water.
