This species is known only from two localities along the road from Abra Pardo de Miguel to Moyobamba on the east slope of the northern part of the Cordillera Central in northern San Martín Region, Peru, from 2,000–2,180 m asl. It probably occurs more widely.
Habitat and Ecology
All known individuals were found on leaves on low vegetation less than 1 m above the ground in humid montane forest at night. Reproduction is by direct development.
There is little information available on the population status and trends for this species, as only a few individuals have been observed.
Major threats to this species is the destruction and degradation of its habitat due to increasing agricultural activity, selective wood extraction, and human settlement. However, it is known from within the boundaries of Bosque de Protección Alto Mayo, where there is suitable habitat remaining, and therefore the effect of these threats on the species remain unknown.
It is known from the Bosque de Protección Alto Mayo.
More information is needed on this species' distribution, population status, ecology and threats.
