This species is widely distributed east of the Colombian Andes in Meta, Casanare, Cundinamarca, and Arauca Departments, between 280–800 m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
This species lives in wet savannas near waterbodies. It appears to require open situations and is very common in transformed habitats (Lynch 2006). It is tolerant of severe human impacts and it reproduces in seasonal and permanent pools. It is presumed to breed by larval development based on information from congeners.
It is an abundant species and the population is considered to be stable.
There are no major threats to this species, and it occurs in very disturbed and polluted areas. If Lithobates catesbeianus is introduced to its range, the population might suffer.
There are no conservation measures needed for this species.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a broad range of habitats, and presumed large population.
It might be conspecific with Dendropsophus microcephalus.
