This species is known only from Monte Escondido on the Atlantic versant in the north-western portion of the Department of Olancho, north-central Honduras, at 1,430-1,550m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It is found on low vegetation, on the ground, and on arboreal bromeliads in lower montane wet forest. It is not known whether or not it can withstand habitat degradation. It breeds by direct development and is not dependent upon water.
It is a moderately common species within its tiny range.
The main threat to the species is habitat loss and degradation due to encroaching coffee cultivation, subsistence agriculture, and livestock ranching activities.
The only known site is in the Parque Nacional La Muralla, which was declared as a protected area in 1987, but this area is poorly protected, and habitat loss is continuing. Improved protection and management of this area is urgently needed.
