Distribution and Habitat

Mannophryne olmonae is endemic to the island of Tobago in the West Indies. It can be found in mountainous areas of the island (Hardy 1983). Adult frogs are normally found near streams in forested areas usually about 2.0 meters from the water edges (Alemu et al. 2007). Tadpoles of M. olmonae are typically found in small pools of water formed from crevices of rocky substrate. Although these pools are usually near a stream, tadpoles are never found within the streams, only in the rocky pools. Pools are generally less than one meter in length and less than 10 cm in depth. Within each pool of water, one can usually find the pool to be densely populated ranging from 50 or more individuals per pool (Lehtinen and Hailey 2008).
