Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Ariadne Angulo, Luis A. Coloma, Santiago Ron, Diego Cisneros-Heredia, Karl-Heinz Jungfer, Javier Icochea
Reviewer(s): Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)
Justification:
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species is known from the type locality, "Loreto, Peru" and Moyobamba, Departamento San Martin, Peru. It has been recorded from two localities in Colombia (Caqueta Department). There is a single record from the Ecuadorian Amazon provided by Read (2002) with no specific locality data. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. Its elevation is up to 800m asl.
