Habitat and Ecology
This species is presumed to occur in tropical moist forest, where the adults are likely to be subterranean. It is also presumably oviparous with terrestrial eggs and aquatic larvae.
The population status of this species is unknown. It has not recently been collected, presumably because of lack of herpetological work within its range.
There is no information on threats to this species.
Its known range does not overlap any protected area, and there are no conservation actions currently in place for this species.
Studies on its taxonomy, population size, distribution and trends, life history and ecology, and threats are needed.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainties as to its extent of occurrence, population status, ecological requirements and threats.
