This species is known only from the State of Acre in the Brazilian Amazon. Its range is very poorly known, and it presumably ranges more widely, including into neighbouring Peru and Bolivia.
Habitat and Ecology
This species can be found in the forest floor in the tropical rainforest. Reproductive mode is unknown, but it is presumably by larval development in water.
Few specimens have been collected. Its abundance is unknown.
Some logging for timber is now taking place within its range, but overall it occurs in an area of limited human impact.
It occurs in several protected areas.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its probable 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 moved from the genus Leptodactylus to the genus Hydrolaetare by de Souza and Haddad (2003).
