Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Needs updating
Assessor(s): Ariadne Angulo, Claudia Azevedo-Ramos, Luis A. Coloma, Santiago Ron
Reviewer(s): Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)
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.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:This species can be found in the Amazon Basin of southern Colombia, Ecuador and Peru (Departamentos Loreto and Madre de Dios). It is also present in Brazil from 70-90km north of Manaus. Records of this species in French Guiana might refer to a different taxon and require further investigation. It is a lowland species.

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:It is usually found around temporary waterbodies in lowland tropical rainforest or its edge. It occurs in rainforest more commonly than in disturbed areas. Breeding takes place in open or Heliconia-choked ponds in clearings and in the forest (Duellman and Wiens, 1993). At Santa Cecilia, Ecuador, individuals were found in primary forest, secondary forest, forest edge, and banana grove habitats (Duellman, 1978). At Yasuní National Park, Ecuador, specimens have been collected in floodable forest and Terra Firme Forest (Ron, 2001). Eggs and tadpoles develop in ponds.
Systems:Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): No major threats, a widespread species with large areas of suitable habitat remaining. There is some localized habitat loss to fire and slash-and-burn agriculture, but it is somewhat adaptable, and might not be greatly impacted by such alteration of tis habitat.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: In Peru, it is known to occur in the Tambopata National Reserve and Parque Nacional Manu, and it might also occur in Gueppi and Allpahuayo Mishana Reserved Zones, Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, Alto Purus Reserved Zone and Bahuaja Sonene National Park. In Ecuador, its geographic range overlaps with Reserva de Producción de Faunística Cuyabeno, Reserva Biológica Limoncocha, and Parque Nacional Yasuní. It is presumably present in protected areas in Brazil, Colombia and French Guiana.
