This species is known from at least 1,584-2,100m asl in the Montañas de Comayagua region in the departments of Comayagua, Francisco Morazán, and La Paz, in Honduras. Accurate knowledge of the range is hindered by the close resemblance of this species to Bufo ibarrai.
Habitat and Ecology
The habitat within the range of this species is moist forest.
There is no information available on its population status.
It is likely to be a candidate for impacts from chytridiomycosis and habitat loss (given the drastic declines of the presumed sister species, B. ibarrai, in Guatemala).
It is known from at least one protected area: Parque Nacional La Tigra.
This species has been separated from Incilius coccifer by Mendelson et al. (2005), although McCranie and Wilson (2002) dispute this.
