Range Description

This species is known from the type locality, "Loreto, Peru" and Moyobamba, Departamento San Martin, Peru. It has been recorded from two localities in Colombia (Caqueta Department). There is a single record from the Ecuadorian Amazon provided by Read (2002) with no specific locality data. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. Its elevation is up to 800m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

A Lowland tropical rainforest species. At Loreto, PerĂº, one specimen was found in rolling terrain with steep slopes and small, sandy bottomed streams in primary forest (Duellman and Mendelson III, 1995). The breeding habitat is not known, though the larvae are likely to develop in streams. It is not known if it can adapt to modified habitats.

Population

It is generally rare, with few specimens at each locality.

Population Trend

Unknown
