This species' geographic range is Western Brazil (Acre, Amazonas and Rondonia), northeastern Bolivia, and southeastern Peru. Its altitudinal range is from 200-1,200 m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
The habitat is lowland and premontane moist tropical forest. Generally, it is found in the understorey vegetation; it is a typical forest edge species. Breeding takes place in temporary pools. This species increases in number when habitats are disturbed, although it does require some nearby bushes and other low vegetation.
A common species, it is increasing in distribution in vegetation along newly constructed roads.
There are no major threats to this species.
It is present in numerous protected areas in Bolivia, Brazil and Peru.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, 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 previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
