This species is known from only two localities on the Amazonian slopes of the Andes: Río Salado in Napo Province, Ecuador; and Caquetá Department, Colombia. It presumably occurs between these two sites. Its known altitudinal range is 1,350-1,400m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It is found in primary and secondary montane forest, where it breeds in ponds.
This is a rare species.
The major threats to this species are likely to be deforestation due to agricultural development, cultivation of illegal crops, logging, and human settlement, and pollution resulting from the spraying of illegal crops.
It is not known to occur in any protected areas, although it might do so.
