From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality, Inza, in Cauca Department, on the eastern slope of the Cordillera Central of the Andes, at 3,000m asl, in Colombia. It presumably occurs more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

The only known specimen was found on vegetation along the side of a stream in sub-Andean forest. The larvae presumably develop in streams like other species of the genus, but the site of egg deposition is not known.


There is no information on the population status of this species, which is known only from one specimen.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Water pollution from agriculture is a major threat to this species, and human disturbance of the streams when planting illegal crops is also a problem.
