Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)
Listed as Vulnerable because its Area of Occupancy is less than 20,000 km2, it is known from fewer than ten locations, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat.
This species is known only from the type locality and adjacent areas including the Tarapoto-Yurimaguas road (San Martín Department) in Peru. It probably occurs more widely than is currently known. It has been recorded up to 600m asl.
It inhabits lowland tropical moist forest and "rolling hills", and can be found in primary and possibly slightly degraded habitats. The breeding habitat is not known, although the larvae are presumably deposited in water.
