Rhaebo lynchi is only known from the type locality, Vereda “El Chuscal”, boundaries with Caicedo, Urrao, Antioquia, Colombia (Mueses-Cisneros, 2007).
Habitat and Ecology
The holotype was captured in primary forest, under logs during a rainy season. The female has a mass of pale eggs and convoluted oviducts (Mueses-Cisneros, 2007).
The species is only known from a single specimen, the holotype.
No major threats are known for this species.
No conservation measures are known for this species. Surveys are needed in the type locality to determine whether it is still present there (the holotype was collected in 1972)(Mueses-Cisneros, pers. com. 2008).
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little known about its extent of occurrence, area of occupancy, status and ecological requirements.
Rhaebo lynchi differs from other congeners by a combination of morphological features (Mueses-Cisneros, 2007).
