Listed as Data Deficient because its taxonomic status, distribution, abundance, population trend, and threats are too poorly known to allow the species to be placed in another category.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species is known only from the area of Alto del Buey on the Serrania Baudo in Chocó Department, Colombia, between 980–1,070 m asl.|

|Population:||It has not been recorded since the 1970s, but there have not been any recent meticulous surveys to search for it (D. Mejía pers comm. 2016).|
|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species lives on the ground and in bromeliads in very humid pre-montane forests in the Pacific region of Colombia. There is no information on its adaptability to secondary habitats. There is no information on breeding, but it is probable that the eggs are laid in leaf-litter and that tadpoles are carried by the adults to bromeliads.|
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Use and Trade:||There are no records of this species being utilized.|
|Major Threat(s):||There is very little information on threats to this species.|
This species occurs in Utria National Park. Decree INDERENA No. 39 of 9 July, 1985, forbids the collection of species of this genus from the wild for breeding (or other) purposes.
Research in taxonomy, population trends, ecology and distribution are recommended for the species.
