From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from two localities on the western slopes of the Cordillera de Colán in the Province of Bagua, Amazonas Region, northern Peru, at elevations of 2,963–3,330 m asl. The complete range of this species is not known, and it might be endemic to the Cordillera de Colán.

Habitat and Ecology

It can be found in tropical moist montane forest with a high diversity of herbaceous plants, shrubs and lianas, and is not known from modified habitats. The paratype was found in a grassy bog above the tree line (Duellman and Pramuk 1999). It is expected to reproduce by direct development, as with other congeners.


There is little information available on the population status and trends for this species, as only a few individuals have been observed.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The threats to this species are unknown, although selective wood extraction might be taking place at the site from which this species is known (and would therefore constitute a threat to it), but this requires confirmation.

Conservation Actions

Conservation Actions
This species is present in the Zona Reservada Cordillera de Colán.

Research Needed
More information is needed on this species' taxonomy, distribution, population status, ecology, and threats.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)
