Distribution and Habitat

Bolitoglossa alvaradoi is a rarely seen arboreal nocturnal salamander presumed to live in forest canopies where it makes use of bromeliad microhabitats (Wake 1987) . Alvarado's salamander is found only in several fragmented populations on the Atlantic slopes of Costa Rica in moist or wet lowland forests and premontane rainforests, at elevation ranges from 700 to 1,150 m (2300 to 3750 ft).(Savage 2002; Leenders 2001)
