Bocourt's tree frogs have been found in open, grassy meadows flooded during the early part of the rainy season as well as under sheaths of banana plants and in a bromeliad; they appears to tolerate some habitat disturbance. They breed in temporary pools.
The species seems to have undergone a serious decline. This is attributed to pesticide pollution from the ornamental plant industry, and possibly, to chytridiomycosis.Show Less
