From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality of "Pebas, Ecuador" (Cope 1871), Loreto Department, Peru. The holotype has been lost, and the description cannot be equated with any living species. The type locality is too vague (it might be Pebas Real) so the range of this species has not been mapped in this assessment.

Habitat and Ecology

There is no information on its habitat and ecological requirements, but it is likely to breed by larval development in water.


Its population status is not known.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The major threats to this species are not known.

Conservation Actions

It is not known to occur in any protected areas.

Taxonomic Notes

This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Hypsiboas (Faivovich et al. 2005). This name is not associated with any known species in the wild and is hence considered a nomen dubium.
