For Red List information on this species, see the IUCN species account.
From the IUCN Red List Species Account:
This species is known from only three localities: Labe (the type locality) and Beyla, Guinea, and the Tingi Hills, Sierra Leone. There has been very little herpetological work carried out within its range, and it is probably more widespread. The exact location of Labe, the type locality, is uncertain, since more than one place in Guinea has this name. The northernmost locality on attempts to map its range in this assessment marks the most likely location of the type locality.
Habitat and Ecology
It presumably lives underground, probably in forest. On the assumption that its breeding habits are similar to Geotrypetes seraphini, it is viviparous, and is not dependent on water for breeding.
No information is available on its population status.
