From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from Gabrielle and Kaw Creek in north-eastern French Guiana (Lescure and Marty 2001), and is likely to occur more widely. A dot-map of the distribution is presented in Lescure and Marty (2001). It occurs at very low altitudes, up to only about 10m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This species inhabits marshes in lowland rainforest and has not been found in disturbed areas. It presumably breeds in water.


It is not thought to be a common species. It can be found relatively easily after heavy rains but otherwise it can be very difficult to locate.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Its major threats are unknown, but most of the known range is within a protected area, so there are not expected to be any major threats to this species' habitat at present.

Conservation Actions

The protected area within which this species is found is Kaw Nature Reserve.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been discovered, and there is still very little information on its Extent of Occurrence, population status and ecological requirements.

Taxonomic Notes

The reference of Lescure (1976) refers to this species as S. rostratus.
