This species is known only from the type locality on the eastern slope of the Cordillera Central on the border of the municipalities of La Victoria and Norcasia, in the valley of La Miela River, at exactly 500m asl, in Caldas Department, Colombia. It might occur more widely in suitable habitats in nearby sites.
Habitat and Ecology
Assuming that this species still survives, it is an inhabitant of the understorey of tropical moist forest, where it presumably breeds by direct development.
It appears to be a rare species, although more information is needed to confirm its population status.
The type locality has now been lost due to the construction of a dam.
The type locality is not within a protected area. More research into the species' Extent of Occurrence, ecological requirements and population status is needed, in particular to determine if it occurs outside the vicinity of the type locality.
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.
