Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Endangered B1ab(iii) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Fernando Castro, Maria Isabel Herrera, John Lynch
Reviewer(s): Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)
Justification:
Listed as Endangered because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 5,000 km2, its distribution is severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat on the Western Cordillera of the Colombian Andes.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species is known from the departments of Antioquia and Caldas on the Cordillera Occidental of the Colombian Andes from 1,140 -1,940m asl. Cochran (1970) recorded one individual from Valle de Cauca Cisneros below 500m asl, but Lynch (1997, 1998b) and Ruiz-Carranza, Ardila-Robayo, and Lynch (1996) did not consider this to be a valid record. Probably by mistake, Acosta-Galvis (2000) included Valle del Cauca in its distribution.
