This species is known from just two localities: Sanokwelle near Ganta in Liberia and Beyla in Guinea. There has been very little herpetological work carried out within its range, and it is probably more widespread.
Habitat and Ecology
It presumably lives underground, probably in forest. Other possible habitats are fruit tree plantations, rural gardens and secondary forest. On the assumption that its breeding habits are similar to Geotrypetes seraphini, it is viviparous, and is not dependent on water for breeding.
There is no information on the population status of this species.
No information is available on threats to this species.
It is not known to occur in any protected areas. Further research is needed on its taxonomy, distribution, population status, natural history and threats.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of its poorly known distribution, population status and ecological requirements.
The taxonomy of this genus is in need of revision.
