This species is known from 900-1,640m asl in the Sierra Maestra of eastern Cuba. The limits of its range remain unknown.
Habitat and Ecology
It has been found in montane rainforest and patches of pines. Most individuals were found under leaf-litter, although a single frog was caught under a small stone close to the margins of a river. Stomachs that were examined were found to contain a few large prey items including cockroaches, pillbugs and a fire-fly larva. This species is presumed to breed by direct development.
