This species occurs above 1,600m asl on the northern slopes of the central highlands of Chiapas, Mexico, from Jitotol to Soluschiapa.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits and breeds in cascading mountain streams in cloud forest areas.
This is not a rare species.
The main threat is deforestation and the disturbance of cloud forest remnants (at present, mountainous cloud forests are the most impacted habitats in Mexico). Chytridiomycosis may also also pose a potential threat to this species.
The range of this species does not include any protected areas, and the protection and restoration of forested highland areas of northern Chiapas, Mexico, is needed. Further research is required to determine whether chytrid might pose a threat to this species. It is protected by Mexican law under the "Special Protection" category (Pr).
Red List Status
Listed as Endangered because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 5,000 km2, all individuals are in fewer than five locations, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat in Chiapas, Mexico.
