It is a common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Habitat destruction and degradation caused primarily by agriculture is a major threat.

Conservation Actions

Taxonomic Notes

This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005). This form is a complex of more than one species (for example, within Bolivia at least two different species are distinguishable).
