This species is restricted to Cienfuegos Province, in Cuba, where it has been recorded from sea level up to 830m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits a wide variety of mesic situations, including natural forest and some anthropogenic habitats such as plantations, as well as introduced vegetation. This suggests that it is able to tolerate some alteration of its habitat, although it does require large trees. Eggs are laid on the ground, and it breeds by direct development.
It is a very common species.
The main threat to this species is habitat loss and degradation as a result of deforestation for agriculture, the development of tourism infrastructure, and the subsequent disturbance of the habitat due to tourist activities.
It is known from a few protected areas, although these areas do not provide sufficient protection for the species, and are in need of expansion and improved management.
