Major Threats

The major threats to this species are habitat fragmentation and loss due to the expansion of agricultural activity, timber extraction, and the cultivation of illegal crops, and also pollution arising from the fumigation of illegal crops.

Conservation Actions

The type locality is not within a protected area, although this species might occur in Parque Nacional de Las Orquídeas, but sampling is needed to confirm this. A protected area is recommended for this species as it is unlikely to tolerate disturbance of its habitat, and its habitat is currently highly threatened.
