This species is known from a small area on the eastern slopes of Cordillera Oriental, Colombia (in the Departments of Boyacá and Norte de Santander) and from nearby at Betania in the State of Táchira, Venezuela. Its known altitudinal range is 2,200-3,000m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It is an adaptable species, living in cloud forests, disturbed forests, tree plantations, and in deforested areas. It breeds in permanent pools.
It is an abundant species, although it is not often recorded due to lack of survey effort.
Since it is tolerant of degraded habitats, and survives where there is heavy use of agro-chemicals, it is probably not a threatened species.
It probably occurs in the Parque Nacional El Tamá in Colombia and Venezuela.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern because, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 5,000 km2, it is abundant, adaptable and does not appear to be in decline.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
