This species is distributed along the Venezuelan Guayanan shield, in the States of Monagas and Delta Amacuro, in areas considered as flooded plains in the Orinoco river delta. It is known from lowland flooded areas, from sea level to 100m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs on the flooded plains of the Orinoco river delta. It lays its eggs on the underside of leaves over rivers and streams and flooded areas, and when hatched the larvae fall in to the stream below where they develop further.
It is a common species.
The Orinoco delta is very important for oil in Venezuela and hence it is very vulnerable to oil spills and other pollution.
Delta populations lie within Parque Nacional Mariusa and Reserva de la Biósfera Delta del Orinoco.
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.
