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.
There are no threats to this widespread species at present.
Several protected areas are present within the range of this species.
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.
