This species is known only from the type locality, La Pedrera, in Amazonas Province, Colombia, at 150m asl. It possibly occurs in neighbouring Brazil. Its distribution is not completely known because it has just been described.
Habitat and Ecology
It is a terrestrial and diurnal species that lives in lowland rainforest and reproduces in slow-moving streams.
It could be common near its type locality.
It is apparently not threatened within its known range.
This species might occur in Parque Nacional El Pure, but more research is needed into its distribution since this is poorly known at present.
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, status and ecological requirements.
