This species is known from the foothills of the Andes and the northwestern Amazonian parts of Bolivia. It has been recorded from 180-700m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits swamps and forest edges, where it also breeds. The eggs are attached to leaves, and tadpoles fall into the water below where they develop further. It is possibly adapted to some anthropogenic disturbance, but it does not occur in urban areas.
It is a locally common species.
There are no known threats to the species at present.
Taxonomic research is needed to establish the relationship of this species to Hyla minuta. Its range includes Carrasco National Park.
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.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005). Ecuadorian populations of Dendropsophus minutus could belong to this species.
