This species is known only from Finca Volcán, in the Sierra de Xucaneb, Alta Verapaz Department, central Guatemala, at 875m asl. However, there is now some doubt as to the correctness of the locality data associated with the specimen (Savage pers. comm.) and there might also be taxonomic problems with this species.
Habitat and Ecology
This species presumably inhabits premontane wet forest, where it presumably breeds by direct development.
It is known only from a single female specimen collected in 1978. It is likely to be rare, since subsequent attempts to locate it have been unsuccessful.
Very little is known about the threats that it faces, but its habitat is being lost due to agricultural encroachment.
t is not known from any protected areas.
