Scientific Name: Phyllomedusa venusta
Species Authority: Duellman and Trueb, 1967

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Annotations:
Needs updating
Assessor(s): Juan Manuel Renjifo, Frank Solís, Roberto Ibáñez, César Jaramillo, Querube Fuenmayor
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.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species occurs widely in northwestern Colombia and the Magdalena Valley, extending into adjacent Panama, where it is known from two sites in the eastern lowlands in southeastern Darien Province. It occurs from sea level up to 1,300m asl.

Population [top]

Population: It is a reasonably common species.
Current Population Trend: Decreasing
Additional data:
Population severely fragmented: No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: It is an arboreal species, living on vegetation in humid lowland forest, including dry forest and degraded habitats with forest patches. Breeding occurs in swamps and ponds.
Systems: Terrestrial; Freshwater

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.
