From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species' geographic range is the eastern versant of the Cordillera Azul, Ucayali Department, Peru, from 300-550m asl. It might range further, but this cannot be fully determined until taxonomic issues surrounding this species are resolved.

Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits lowland and tropical moist rainforest. It is not known if it can occur in degraded habitat, although it is possible that it occurs at forest edges. Eggs are deposited on the forest floor and the larvae are then transported to streams by the males.

Population

There is nothing known about its population status.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Within its current known range this species is threatened by smallholder subsistence farming (including cattle), other agricultural activities and deforestation for timber and subsistence use.

Conservation Actions

It might occur in Parque Nacional Cordillera Azul, although this requires confirmation. The taxonomy of this species requires further work; many specimens are misidentified in museum collections (Jungfer pers comm.).
