From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known from just two localities: Sanokwelle near Ganta in Liberia and Beyla in Guinea. There has been very little herpetological work carried out within its range, and it is probably more widespread.

Habitat and Ecology

It presumably lives underground, probably in forest. Other possible habitats are fruit tree plantations, rural gardens and secondary forest. On the assumption that its breeding habits are similar to Geotrypetes seraphini, it is viviparous, and is not dependent on water for breeding.

Population

There is no information on the population status of this species.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

No information is available on threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

It is not known to occur in any protected areas. Further research is needed on its taxonomy, distribution, population status, natural history and threats.

Taxonomic Notes

The taxonomy of this genus is in need of revision.
