Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:The Bolivian localities comprise evergreen tropical montane forest; in Peru it is known from lowland forest areas. It has been recorded calling from bushes at the edge of the road during light rain and was heard from the canopy at about 6-10m above the ground during a heavy downpour. Reproduction in this species is by direct development.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): There are not thought to be any major threats to this species, which is presumed to be widespread and to have large areas of suitable habitat remaining. There is some localized habitat loss due to human activities such as collection of wood, logging, agriculture (involving both crops and livestock, for example), oil exploration and settlement.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Its range overlaps with Parque Nacional Manu in Peru, and Parque Nacional Carrasco in Bolivia.
