From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from Finca Volcán, in the Sierra de Xucaneb, Alta Verapaz Department, central Guatemala, at 875m asl. However, there is now some doubt as to the correctness of the locality data associated with the specimen (Savage pers. comm.) and there might also be taxonomic problems with this species.

Habitat and Ecology

This species presumably inhabits premontane wet forest, where it presumably breeds by direct development.

Population

It is known only from a single female specimen collected in 1978. It is likely to be rare, since subsequent attempts to locate it have been unsuccessful.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Very little is known about the threats that it faces, but its habitat is being lost due to agricultural encroachment.

Conservation Actions

t is not known from any protected areas.

Taxonomic Notes

This species was previously within the genus Eleutherodactylus (Crawford and Smith 2005). There might be taxonomic problems associated with this species (Savage pers. comm.).
