From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is restricted to Ile de la Tortue, in Haiti, where it has been recorded from around 400 m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is a terrestrial species, found on rocks and in leaf-litter, in xeric hardwood forest. Eggs are laid on the ground, and it breeds by direct development.


There is little information available on this species' population status. It has not been collected since it was first described, although there has been no recent survey work for this species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Extensive habitat degradation, due to charcoaling and slash-and-burn agriculture, is taking place on Ile de la Tortue.

Conservation Actions

There are no protected areas on the island, and so effective protection of the species' remaining habitat is needed to ensure its persistence.

Red List Status

Critically Endangered (CR)


Listed as Critically Endangered because of an expected population decline of greater than 80% over the next ten years, predicted from severe degradation of the species' habitat on Ile de la Tortue, in Haiti.
