Not known to occur inside Ecuador’s protected areas network, but could occur in the Bosque Protector Poza Honda. Considered Endangered due to the drastic alteration of its habitat during the last 50 years. No specimens of this species are housed in Ecuadorean museums. Apart from habitat destruction, no specific threats are known.
