This species is known from two adult specimens at only two localities: Puerto Edén (49° 8'S; 74° 25'W) at Wellington Island; and Seno Huemules (48° 43'S; 74° 25'W), both in southern Chile.
Habitat and Ecology
This species occurs in tundra and small forests composed of Nothofagus betuloides, Embothrium coccineum, Maytenus magellanicus and Drymis winterri. It can be found under logs. Its reproductive details are unknown, though this presumably occurs by larval development in water.
It is probably a rare species. It was seen in 1998, but two expeditions in 2001 and 2002 to the same locality failed to locate it.
The major threats to this species are unknown.
This species occurs in Parque Nacional Bernardo O'Higgins.
