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.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Conservation Actions

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.
