From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known from a single locality in Venezuelan Guyana: the village of Las Majadas, in Bolívar State, at the merging of the Caura and Orinoco Rivers. It has a very restricted range in a degraded environment, where it has been recorded from 100m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in semi-deciduous forests. Its breeding habits are unknown, although larvae presumably develop in water, as with other species of the genus.

Population

It is known from only two specimens, so nothing is known about its population status.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

The major threats to this species' habitat are agricultural development, both for crops and livestock, as well as infrastructure development for human settlements. Over-fishing is also a problem.

Conservation Actions

Its range does not include any protected areas.
