This species is known from the Guianan region of Brazil, Suriname and French Guiana. It has not yet been recorded from Guyana. In Brazil, it is known from Acre, Pará and Roraima (Heyer, 2005). It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. It occurs from sea level up to 600m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits rocky outcrop areas, in lowland tropical rainforest (Heyer, 1995; Heyer, 2005). It places foam nests under stones, and the tadpoles are raised in riverlets during the rainy season.


It is a common species.
