Range Description

This species is known from Guacharaquita, in the state of Táchira, in the Venezuelan Andes at 1,768m asl, and from Mundo Nuevo, in the state of Cojedes, at 396m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in evergreen dry forest in the Andes, and humid forests in the southern central part of the Venezuelan coastal mountain tange. Eggs are laid on the underside of leaves in humid forest near streams, into which the larvae then fall to complete their development.

Population

Population Trend

decreasing

Major Threats

The habitat of the Andean populations has suffered from intensive exploitation and degradation in the past, and these populations are now almost extirpated.

Conservation Actions

The range of this species does not include any protected areas. Surveys are needed to determine the current population status of the Andean population.

Red List Status

Endangered (EN)

Rationale

Listed as Endangered because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 5,000 km2, all individuals are in fewer than five locations, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat in Venezuela.
