From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is currently known only from near to the junction of the Río Napo and the much smaller Río Sucusari (Loreto Department), in Peru. Very little is known about the range of this recently described species, and it is likely that it is much more widely distributed. It has an altitudinal range of up to 200m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is a little-known diurnal frog of tropical lowland moist forest. While it is not generally associated with streams, adults probably carry the larvae to streams to develop.


There is nothing known about the population status of this species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There are probably no major threats to this species as there are few human activities within its range, although there is limited tourism development ongoing in the region.

Conservation Actions

This species does not occur in any protected areas, and so there might be a need to establish protected areas for this species if habitat degradation significantly increases.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)
