From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from two localities in the valley of the Río Lari, in Limón Province, Costa Rica, at 400-440m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

The species was recoreded from premontane rainforest.


It is known only from two males found calling alongside streams; nothing is currently known about population abundance.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There is little habitat loss within the range of this species.

Conservation Actions

This species was collected from within an indigenous reserve. It should be noted that some other species of Eleutherodactylus that are associated with streams have undergone dramatic declines and disappearances, possibly due to chytridiomycosis, so the status of this species should be monitored carefully.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.

Taxonomic Notes

Further specimens are needed to confirm the taxonomic validity of this species (Federico Bolaños pers. comm.).
