From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the Serranía de Pirre, Darién Province, Panama, between 1,100 and 1,440m asl (Grant 2004).

Habitat and Ecology

This is a diurnal species of humid montane forest that is often found along rocky sections of forest streams. The eggs are deposited in leaf-litter, and the adults carry the larvae to streams.


It appears to be less common on the northern end of the Serranía de Pirre in the ridge-top cloud forest at 1,100-1,230m asl.

Population Trend

Taxonomic Notes

Specimens reported by Savage (1968) from the Serranía de Darién, Panama, are not conspecific with this species and probably represent an undescribed species. It is doubtful whether or not the lost Colombian holotype of Colostethus latinasus was conspecific with the Panamanian neotype and specimens that agree with the neotype have yet to be found in Colombia (Grant 2004).
