Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young) Justification
Listed as Vulnerable because it is known from fewer than five locations.
It is not thought to be a rare species. Population Trend
There are no major threats to the species' habitat at present, as its habitat is relatively well protected. Some other species of Eleutherodactylus
that are associated with streams at high elevations have undergone dramatic declines and disappearances, possibly due to chytridiomycosis, so the status of this species should be monitored carefully.
One locality is within Parque Nacional Natural Munchique, and the other is in a private reserve that has well-protected primary forest. The maintenance of these protected areas is essential for the long-term survival of this restricted-range, microhabitat specialist.
