Range Description

This species is known only from 1,700m asl in humid montane forest on the western slopes of the Cordillera Colán, in Amazonas Department in northern Peru. The complete range of this recently described species is not known, and it might be endemic to the Cordillera de Colán.

Habitat and Ecology

It was found in evergreen forest with a high diversity of herbaceous plants, shrubs and lianas. Breeding is presumably by direct development.


This species has been named from a single specimen, so its population status is not known.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There might be selective wood extraction in the area in which this species is found (which would be a threat to it) but this requires confirmation.
