This species occurs in central Panama in the Pacific and Atlantic lowlands and cordilleras, and in the eastern cordilleras adjacent to central Panama, extending into the Choco region and the Lower Cauca Valley in Antioquia Department of northwestern Colombia. It is found below 700m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits humid lowland forest, living in leaf-litter. It is not found in degraded habitats, but it can tolerate slight disturbance. It breeds by direct development and is not dependent upon water.


It is slightly more common than the sympatric Oedipina complex. There is no recent information from Colombia.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The major threats are deforestation for agricultural development, illegal crops, logging and human settlement, and pollution resulting from the spraying of illegal crops.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in the following protected areas: Cerro Campana National Park; Soberania National Park; Chagres National Park; Isla Barro del Colorado National Monument; and close to Utria Natural National Park in Colombia.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
