This species occurs on the northeastern slope of the Andes, from Chapare Province, Department of Cochabamba, to eastern Caballero Province, Department of Santa Cruz, Bolivia (De la Riva and Köhler 1998, Köhler 2000). It occurs at 1,700-2,300m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It is a terrestrial species that can be found in very humid cloud forest or in Yungas forest. During the day, it can be found in leaf-litter on the forest floor. One individual was found inside an epiphytic bromeliad, 3-4m from the ground (Köhler 2000b). It breeds by direct development.
It is an abundant species.
There are no known threats, since its forest habitat is well protected.
All known localities are within Carrasco National Park.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably much less than 20,000 km2, it occurs in an area of extensive, suitable habitat which appears not to be under significant threat, it has a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
