From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from the type locality, at 1,700m asl in the Cordillera del CutucĂș, and from one other locality about 400km north (in Parque Nacional Sumaco Napo-Galeras, at 2,000m asl), in Ecuador. It is likely to occur more widely, in particular between the known sites.

Habitat and Ecology

Specimens have been collected in a flat area on a ridge with cloud forest with a relatively open canopy and many tree falls (Duellman and Lynch 1988). It can also occur in fairly disturbed areas, for example it has been found on roadsides. It is a species that breeds by direct development.


It was found to be common in 2001 in Parque Nacional Sumaco Napo-Galeras.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Agricultural activity (both the cultivation of crops and the rearing of livestock) is a future threat, while logging, and infrastructure developments for human settlement, are ongoing threats to its habitat.

Conservation Actions

Parque Nacional Sumaco Napo-Galeras is the only protected area from which this species is currently known.
