From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from central (a single locality) and (presumably) northern Bolivia, central and southern Amazonian Peru (Departmentos Madre de Dios, Cusco and Puno) and recorded from western Acre State, Brazil. This is a lowland species.

Habitat and Ecology

All specimens were found in primary humid tropical rainforest. At Finca Panguana and Cosñipata Valley (Peru) many individuals were found by day, they were in leaf-litter on the forest floor, and others were calling from a log. It breeds by direct development and is not present in modified habitats.


It is a common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There is some localized habitat loss to general human activities such as collection of wood, logging, agriculture (crops, livestock etc.), oil exploration and colonization.

Conservation Actions

The range of this species overlaps with Parque Nacional Manu and Tambopata-Candamo National Reserve (Madre de Dios) in Peru. In Brazil it is present in Parque Nacional da Serra do Divisor, Acre. It is not known to occur in any Bolivian 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.
