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, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The major threats are likely to be deforestation for agricultural development (especially for cotton and rice), illegal crops, logging, and human settlement, and pollution resulting from the general use of agro-chemicals, as well as the spraying of illegal crops. Drying up of breeding sites is probably also a problem.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: It occurs in the Parque Nacional Darién in Panama. It probably does not occur in many protected areas in Colombia.
