This species is restricted to St. Vincent, Lesser Antilles, from 275-922m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It is arboreal and can be found in rainforests, forest edge and montane meadows surrounded by agriculture. It lives on the ground and on vegetation. The eggs are laid on the ground, and breeding occurs by direct development without a larval stage.
It is not a well-known species, but it appears to be moderately common in suitable habitat.
The major threat is habitat loss due to urbanization and tourism development, as well as for agriculture.
It is unclear whether this species is represented in a protected area; clearly, though, habitat protection is urgently needed to ensure the persistence of this restricted-range species.
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 on St Vincent.
