From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from the type locality in Amazonas, Brazil, and from Caparú (department of Vaupés) and Puré (department of Amazonas), in Colombia. It occurs between 100-200m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is usually found around temporary waterbodies in primary forest. Eggs and tadpoles are in the water. It has not been recorded from disturbed areas.


In Colombia it is known as a common species, but there is no information available on the population status in Brazil.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Shifting agriculture is the only potential threat to the species, although this is most likely a localized threat and not a major threat to the species overall.

Conservation Actions

In Colombia the known locality in Puré is in Puré National Park. In Brazil the type locality is within an indigenous reserve. More research into the species' Extent of Occurrence and population status, in particular in Brazil, is needed.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


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