This species is known from the states of Amazonas and Acre and along the Jurua River, in Brazil, from 100-250m asl. There is very little information known about its distribution and attempts to map its range at this stage should be regarded as approximate.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs in lowland primary and secondary rainforest, and is tolerant of a degree of habitat degradation. It lays its eggs on land, and the larvae are then carried by the parents to streams where they develop further.
It is a common species.
Clear-cut logging and fires are threats to the species' habitat.
Its range includes indigenous reserves and national parks.
Assessors at the Amazon GAA workshop in Brazil raised questions as to the taxonomic validity of this species, but Morales (pers. comm.) is convinced that it is a valid species.
