Range Description

This species is known from the foothills of the Andes and the northwestern Amazonian parts of Bolivia. It has been recorded from 180-700m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits swamps and forest edges, where it also breeds. The eggs are attached to leaves, and tadpoles fall into the water below where they develop further. It is possibly adapted to some anthropogenic disturbance, but it does not occur in urban areas.

Population

It is a locally common species.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Taxonomic Notes

This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005). Ecuadorian populations of Dendropsophus minutus could belong to this species.
