This species occurs in southeastern Colombia in the departments of Amazonas, Caquetá, and Vaupés (Lynch, 2008), at 100-200m asl (J. Lynch, unpubl.). It almost certainly occurs much more widely, including in neighbouring Brazil.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in lowland rainforests where it occurs on the vegetation. It lays eggs in slow-moving streams, and the larvae develop there also.
It is uncommon, but it was collected in 2002.
This species is threatened mostly only in the southern part of its range, by habitat destruction caused by the expansion of cattle ranching activities.
It occurs in El Pure National Park and Caparu Biological Station.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its likely wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining 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 Hypsiboas (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
