From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from a small stream in Rancho Grande, at 1,090m asl, in Aragua State, Venezuela.

Habitat and Ecology

Its habitat is montane streams in cloud forest.

Population

It has not been seen for nearly fifty years, despite it being known from a well-surveyed area, so its population status is currently unclear. However, surveys in this area have not targeted this species or its microhabitat, so it is possible that it has been overlooked.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

This species is probably not threatened by habitat degradation as the habitat at the only known locality remains intact. Some other species of Eleutherodactylus that are associated with streams have undergone dramatic declines and disappearances, possibly due to chytridiomycosis, so this might be a threat to this species.

Conservation Actions

The type locality is protected inside Parque Nacional Henri Pittier.
