From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

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.

Population Trend


Major Threats

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).

Conservation Actions

It is known from at least one protected area: Parque Nacional La Tigra.

Taxonomic Notes

This species has been separated from Incilius coccifer by Mendelson et al. (2005), although McCranie and Wilson (2002) dispute this.
