This species is known from the Upper Amazon Basin of western Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. In northern Peru this species is observed in the Departments of Loreto and Ucayali. Frost included western Brazilian Amazonia in its range but inventories in that region did not record the species. Its altitudinal range is from 0-600m asl.

This species is a conspicuous forest inhabitant. They are found on the leaf-litter of primary and secondary tropical rainforest by day, but more commonly found on low vegetation at night. Eggs and direct development occur on land.
It is common in Ecuador, Colombia, and Peru.
Logging, livestock, mining and fire might threaten some populations but there is no overall threat to the species.
The range of this species includes many protected areas. The range in Peru includes an area that has been proposed as a Priority by Conservation of Biodiversity (Rodriguez, 1996).
