This species is widely distributed east of the Colombian Andes in Meta, Casanare, Cundinamarca, and Arauca Departments, at 280-800m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in wet savannahs near waterbodies. It appears to require open situations and accordingly is very common in transformed habitats (Lynch, 2006). It is tolerant of severe human impacts and it reproduces in seasonal and permanent pools.
It is an abundant species.
It occurs in very disturbed and polluted areas. If Lithobates catesbeianus is introduced to its range, the population might suffer.
There are no conservation measures needed for this species.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005). It might be conspecific with Dendropsophus microcephalus.
