Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality in Valle del Cauca Department on the western slope of the Cordillera Central, Colombia, at 1,500m asl. However, it is most likely a synonym of a much wider ranging species.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs on the ground near streams in sub-Andean forests. It is a very adaptable species and is also found in cropland and cow pastures. Eggs are laid in the leaf-litter and the larvae are then carried to streams where they develop further.

Population

It is common.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats
