From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is restricted to the general region of the type locality, which is given as "127km along the El Dorado-Santa Elena de Uairen road" (Duellman 1986), in Bolívar State, south-eastern Venezuela, at altitudes between 180 and 1,250m asl (05° 57'N; 61° 27'W). Its range is still largely unknown, and it is expected to occur more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

Males of this nocturnal species were found situatued horizontally or head-up, calling from leaves of herbaceous vegetation and bushes over a sluggish stream, or from small, deep ponds in forest, and on vines above and around vegetation around a temporary pool at the edge of the forest (Duellman 1997). It has also been recorded from marginal vegetation at the edge of a lagoon (Gorzula and Señaris 1999). Its breeding habits are unknown, but it is presumably a larval developer in water.

Population

It is not common.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

The installation of power lines and the associated development are localized threats to this species' habitat. The disturbance of its habitat by tourists and fires is also a problem. However, in general this species occurs in a region of relatively low human impact, and so it is probably not very seriously threatened.

Conservation Actions

Part of its range is protected within Parque Nacional Canaima.
