This species is known from the Guianan Shield in Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, south of the coastal savannah belt. It has been recorded from 30-1,850m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs in tropical rainforest and montane Guianan forests. Specimens were found in small, rocky permanent streams in primary forest. Lescure and Marty (2001) indicated that this is a nocturnal, arboreal species that lives in forests along rivers. The eggs are laid on the upper and under sides of leaves overhanging streams, into which the larvae fall to complete their development.
Published information indicated that this is an abundant frog in some localities (like Quebrada de Jaspe in Bolívar State, Venezuela) but no exact information was given to ascertain proper figures of population size.
It occurs in an area of minimal human impact, and it is unlikely to be threatened at present.
Its range includes several National Parks and other protected areas.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
