Geographic Occurrence

Natural Resident: Ecuador, Peru


Noted in the original publication to be assigned to Cochranella solely on the basis of plesiomorphies and that further elucidation of the phylogeny of Cochranella will presumably result in recognition of groups that are phyletically closer to Hyalinobatrachium and Centrolene than to some Cochranella. Twomey, Delia, and Castroviejo-Fisher, 2014, Zootaxa, 3851: 53–54, provided new data and distribution and life history information. Guayasamin, Cisneros-Heredia, McDiarmid, Peña, and Hutter, 2020, Diversity, 12 (222): 229–232, provided a detailed account, including adult morphology, advertisement call, relationships, natural history, and conservation status.
