From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This recently described species is known from a locality at an altitude of 183m asl in the Amazonian lowlands on the Río Tigres in extreme northern Loreto Department, Peru, although it is possible that it is more widespread.

Habitat and Ecology

The area it was found in is situated along the border of a swamp in secondary and primary forest. The only known specimen (a gravid female) was found on leaf-litter in primary forest. This species presumably breeds by direct development.


It is currently known only from the holotype, and there is no information on its population status.

Population Trend


Major Threats

It is possibly threatened by localized habitat loss due to human activities such as agricultural development (including cultivation of crops and rearing of livestock.

Conservation Actions

This species is not known from any protected areas.

Taxonomic Notes

The description of this species has been based on a single specimen. However, this specimen is so different from any other Amazonian species that it is inconceivable that it is a variant of a known species.
