Range Description

This species is known from the Pacific lowlands of Colombia (in the Departments of Chocó and Risaralda) and from northwestern Ecuador. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites in Colombia and Ecuador. Its altitudinal range is 20-500m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in secluded places on forest edges and in open areas with some trees. The type series of this species was collected at a large duckweed-covered pond in a banana grove. The eggs are laid in water, and the tadpoles develop in temporary and permanent ponds.


It is a common species.
