Habitat and Ecology
This is presumably a subterranean species in evergreen or semi-evergreen tropical forest. It is assumed to be oviparous with terrestrial eggs that develop directly, and to not be dependent on water for breeding.
There is no information on the population status of this species, which is known only from the holotype, which was collected in or before 1904.
The threats to this species are unknown. It is possible that the development of infrastructure, particularly urbanization, is threatening its type locality.
It is in need of taxonomic review (Wilkinson pers. comm.).
The taxonomic status of this species is unclear.
