s EOO is 17,467 km2.
Habitat and Ecology
This species occurs in rainforests and sub-Andean forest, and is often found on vegetation along streams (being restricted to streams with canopy cover). It lays its eggs on the upper surface of leaves and, when hatched, the tadpoles drop into the stream below.
It is an uncommon species. Due to ongoing decline in the extent and quality of habitat, the population is suspected to be decreasing.
Major threats include habitat loss and fragmentation due to the expansion of agriculture (cattle raising and planting of illegal crops) occurring throughout its range.
The range of the species includes Orquideas National Park and Catamá National Park.
Additional habitat protection is required.
Further research in population trends, ecology and distribution are recommended for the species.
Red List Status
Listed as Vulnerable because its extent of occurrence (EOO) is 17,467 km2, it occurs in fewer than 10 threat-defined locations, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat due to the expansion of agriculture (cattle raising and planting of illegal crops).
