From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is reported to range through French Guiana and adjacent Suriname, south to the Manaus area of Brazil. However, there is serious uncertainty as to what species is covered by this name, and attempts to map its range at this stage should be regarded as provisional.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in the leaf-litter of forests, where it lays its eggs on land, and the larvae are then carried to water to develop further.


It is reportedly reasonably common in French Guiana.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There are no known threats, and it occurs widely in an area of minimal human impact.

Conservation Actions

This species presumably occurs in several protected areas. Its taxonomic status is very confused, so further taxonomic research is required to resolve this.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainty as to its taxonomic status.

Taxonomic Notes

It is uncertain how to apply this name to animals from outside French Guiana, and so its taxonomic status is very confused.
