This species is known from the state of Nayarit on the Pacific mainland, and from two of the three Marias Islands in the Pacific Ocean, Mexico.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits shrublands and dry forest at low altitudes, and breeds by direct development.
No information on the population status of this species is known.
Disturbance and transformation of its habitat due to tourism and smallholder agricultural activity is a major threat to it.
Its range does not include any protected areas, but it is afforded some protection due to the isolation of some of its populations confined on the Marias Islands. Taxonomic revision of this species is needed. It is protected by Mexican law under the "Special Protection" category (Pr).
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing doubts as to its taxonomic validity, as well as the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
