Habitat and Ecology
The only known specimen was found during the daytime, in the leaf litter of the forest floor, on a wet ridge in the forest (Köhler and Sunyer, 2006).
It likely breeds by direct development, as in other congeners (G. Köhler, pers. comm. 2008).
The species is only known from one specimen, the holotype.
No major threats are known for this species.
No conservation measures are known for this species.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
Craugastor chingopetaca can be distinguished from other similar species by a combination of morphological features (Köhler and Sunyer, 2006).
