English Names

El Tambo Cochran Frog (Frank and Ramus, 1995, Compl. Guide Scient. Common Names Amph. Rept. World: 47).

Distribution

Lower humid montane forest at elevations of 500 and 1250 m on the Pacific versant of the Western Andes in southern Colombia (1° 10′ N—4° N) and on the Pacific Andean slopes of northwestern Ecuador (Pichincha and Imbabura Provinces), 600-1200 m elevation.

Comment

In the Cochranella ocellata group according to Ruiz-Carranza and Lynch, 1991, Lozania, 57: 1-30. Placed in the Cochranella spinosa group by Savage, 2002, Amph. Rept. Costa Rica: 365. Cisneros-Heredia and McDiarmid, 2007, Zootaxa, 1572: 56, discussed the species in Ecuador and noted the relevant literature. Yánez-Muñoz and Cisneros-Heredia, 2008, Check List, 4: 50-54, provided a number of records from Ecuador. Guayasamin, Castroviejo-Fisher, Trueb, Ayarzagüena, Rada, and Vilà, 2009, Zootaxa, 2100: 57, considered this species as incertae sedis within Centroleninae and not part of a monophyletic Cochranella. Cisneros-Heredia, Yánez-Muñoz, and Ortega-Andrade, 2011 "2010", Avanc. Cienc. Ingen., Quito, Secc. B,, 2 (3): B3, considered this species to be in Rulyrana without discussion.  Castroviejo-Fisher, Guayasamin, Gonzalez-Voyer, and Vilà, 2014, J. Biogeograph., 41: 73, placed the species in Sachatamia on the basis of a phylogeny reconstruction.
