This species occurs below 500m asl in Bolívar state, Venezuela, and also in Guyana, Suriname and in the Amazon basin of Colombia, Brazil, Peru and northwestern Bolivia. Although the species range map in Walls (1994) depicts the species in French Guiana, a recent work by Lescure and Marty (2001) does not include this taxon for that country.
Habitat and Ecology
It is a diurnal and terrestrial species that is found in old and second growth tropical rainforests on the forest floor. The eggs are laid in the litter and the tadpoles are carried on the back to temporary pools.
It is common throughout its range.
Deforestation is a threat to this species. It is sometimes found in the international pet trade but at levels that do not currently constitute a major threat.
It occurs in several protected areas in its range, except for in Venezuela and Guyana.
