This species is known from the inter-Andean dry valleys and transitional zones within southwest Santa Cruz and northeast Chuquisaca departments in Bolivia. It has been recorded from 750-1,800m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
This species has been observed calling on rocky banks and under secondary formation brushwood. It is also known from primary dry forest, and disturbed dry forest. It breeds by direct development, and has also been recorded from degraded forest and rural gardens.
It is a locally common species.
Agriculture, both crops and livestock, as well as logging are major threats to the species’ habitat.
It is not known to occur in any protected areas.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 20,000 km2, it is common and adaptable with a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
Differences in acoustic parameters support the specific status of Oreobates ibischi (Padial et al., 2008).
