This species is known from the Pacific lowlands of southern Sinaloa, Mexico.
Habitat and Ecology
It has been found on rocky and humid areas on the forest floor in the foothills of tropical deciduous forest. It is a species that breeds by direct development.
In the 1950s and 1960s it was said to be an abundant species within its range. However, it is now considered to be a rare species. It is possible that the apparent change in status might be a result of misidentifications, although it is possible there has been a real decline.
Disturbance and desiccation of the crevice microhabitats used by this species, due to selective wood extraction and wild fires, is a major threat to it.
This species is protected by Mexican law under the "Special Protection" category (Pr).
