This species is ostensibly known from the municipality of Apartado, Antioquia Department, in north-western Colombia, at 30m asl. However, there are doubts as to the provenance of the type specimen.

Habitat and Ecology

There is no information on the habitat and ecology of this species, which presumably breeds in streams, like other members of its genus.


It is known from just a single specimen, so its overall population status is not known.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)
