From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species was previously known only from the type locality on the southern slope of the Wilhelmina Mountains in Suriname. It is now also known from Sipaliwini Nature Reserve (Fouquet et al. 2015). It occurs at around 200 m asl and it is expected to occur more widely (A. Fouquet pers. comm. November 2017). The extent of occurrence (EOO) of its current known range is 2,144 km2.

Habitat and Ecology

The type locality is within primary forest. There is no information regarding this species' breeding habits, though it presumably breeds in streams.


The 2004 assessment reported that recent surveys of areas close to the type locality had not found this species, but the type locality itself had not been resurveyed (IUCN 2004). This is still the case.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There are no threats to this species at present as it occurs in a very isolated area.

Conservation Actions

Conservation Actions
This species occurs in Central Suriname Protected area and Sipliwani Nature Reserve. 

Research Needed
More research into the species' extent of occurrence, ecological requirements and population status is needed.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


This species is listed as Least Concern because, although its extent of occurrence (EOO) is 2,144 km2, there are no current threats and it occurs in an area that is both isolated and protected.
