This species is known from Sierra de San Luis to Unare depression, in northern Venezuela. It has been recorded from 200-1,600m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits tropical moist forests in low and highlands. It is relatively adaptable and is found in some rural villages, and is an opportunistic species that takes advantage of human-induced clearings. It has been found breeding in permanent grass-covered, natural, or man-made pools, within primary cloud forest or near to human buildings.
It is a relatively common species.
There are no major threats to this adaptable species at present.
Its range includes several National Parks.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably not much greater 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.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
