Pristimantis iiap Padial, Gagliardi-Urrutia, Chaparro, and Gutiérrez, 2016, Ann. Carnegie Mus., 83: 207–218. Holotype: MHNC14833, by original designation. Type locality: "Campamento 4 on the Sepahua River, between Quebrada Zungaro and Quebrada Esther, Distrito Sepahua, Provincia Atayala, Departamento Ucayali, Peru (11.07441° S, 72.22856° W) at 415 m above sea level". 

Distribution

Known from two nearby localities along the slopes that surround the course of the Sepahua River, between Quebrada Zungaro and Quebrada Esther, Distrito Sepahua, Provincia Atayala, Departamento Ucayali, Peru. It seems to be restricted to the bamboo dominated forests of the western versant of the Fitzcarrald Arch, although it may have a broader distribution in similar habitats along the lower hills of the eastern versant of Cordillera del Sira and Cordillera Vilcabamba, as well as the headwaters of the Purus and the Piedras rivers. 

Comment

In the Pristimantis conspicillatus group according to the original publication.
