Habitat and Ecology
It is believed to be a subterranean inhabitant in tropical forest.
There is no information on the population of this species. There have been no recent records, presumably due to lack of fieldwork within its range.
Deforestation as a result of expanding agriculture is a potential threat to it, but there is not enough information available to confirm this.
This species is in need of taxonomic review (Wilkinson pers. comm.).
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
