This species is known only from the region of the type locality (Parintins; Amazonas, Brazil) and lower Rio Trombetas, Pará, Brazil. It presumably occurs more widely.
Habitat and Ecology
It can be found in leaf-litter in old-growth forest. The eggs are laid on aerial roots over temporary pools and the larvae develop in these pools.
It is abundant within its range.
Deforestation by clear-cutting for cattle ranching and timber extraction are threats to this species.
It occurs in Rio Trombetas Biological Reserve and National Forest.
