Range Description

Psychrophrynella condoriri is only known from the type locality: Amaguaya (3,760 m asl), Province of Larecaja, Department of La Paz, Bolivia (De la Riva 2007). It is believed to have a restricted distribution, and may occur between 3,500-3,800 m asl (I. De la Riva pers. comm. 2008).

Habitat and Ecology

Individuals of the species can be found under stones by day in humid páramo with abundant mosses, slightly above the village of Amaguaya (De la Riva 2007). The species presumably has direct development.

Population

Although its population status is unknown, it could be common, given that the three known specimens were found within a half hour (I. De la Riva pers. comm. 2008).

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

A restricted geographic distribution and the predicted effects of climate change (e.g., drying up of regions) are considered to pose serious threats to the species (I. De la Riva pers. comm. 2008).

Conservation Actions

No conservation measures are known for this species.

Taxonomic Notes

Psychrophrynella condoriri is distinguished from other similar species by a combination of colour patterns and morphological features (De la Riva 2007).
