From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known to occur over the western and central parts of the department of Pando, northern Bolivia, in the southwestern Amazon basin (Moravec et al. 2008). It may possibly occur more widely, including in Peru and Brazil. It occurs between 200-300 m asl (J. Moravec pers. comm. June 2009).

Habitat and Ecology

This species inhabits tall evergreen lowland rainforests (Moravec et al. 2008). Frogs can be found in very humid swampy or flooded shores of smaller streams running through undisturbed terra firme forest. These places are typically densely overgrown with herbaceous plants, ferns and palms, and also have abundant herbaceous lianas. Where there are long or heavy rains, males descend to 2–4 m above the inundated ground and call hidden from view (Moravec et al. 2008). Reproductive mode and larvae are unknown, although it is presumed that the species breeds in water.


Population densities of this species are considered to be comparatively low, as observed local assemblages of calling males did not exceed 4–6 individuals (Moravec et al. 2008).
