Phantasmal Dart Frogs

Natural Habitat

Andean slopes of Ecuador, South America


Range of small invertebrates


Threat Level: Endangered

The major threat is agrochemical pollution of waterways, and habitat loss due to smallholder farming activities. It is also collected for medicinal use in Ecuador. Some of the declines appear to have taken place in suitable habitat, so chytridiomycosis cannot be ruled out as a possible threat.
