This species is known from the upper Amazon basin in Ecuador, the lowlands east of the Andes in the Departments of Huánuco, Loreto, Ucayali and Madre de Dios, Peru; northern Bolivia and western Brazilian Amazonia. It has an altitudinal range of 100m to 400m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It is usually found on trees around temporary pools in lowland primary and secondary tropical rainforest and forest-edge habitats. The eggs are deposited on leaves and the tadpoles develop in temporary waterbodies. It can be found in modified habitats at the forest edge.
It is a common species.
There are no major threats, it is a widespread species with large areas of suitable habitat remaining. There is some localized habitat loss to general human activities such as logging and agriculture (crops, livestock etc.).
In Peru this species is known to occur in Parque Nacional Manu and Tambopata National Reserve, and might also occur in Allpahuayo Mishana Reserved Zone, Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, Alto Purus Reserved Zone and Bahuaja Sonene National Park, Peru. It is present in many Brazilian protected areas and presumably in protected areas in Ecuador and Bolivia.
