Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:The species is more frequently observed in cloud forest above 2400 masl, particularly in secondary forest (S. Arroyo, pers. comm. 2008). Individuals are found on leaves at heights 1.5 to 2.0 m above the ground and are nocturnal. Pristimantis carlossanchezi was not heard, male calling activity was not recorded (Arroyo, 2007).

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Given that the species was collected in regenerating secondary forest, perhaps deforestation could be a possible threat (S. Arroyo, pers. comm. 2008).

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: In the course of three studies the species was collected at two different sites, both of which are in protected areas [one is in a Reserve projected to become a Natural Park, and the other one is in an area that has been declared as a Sactuary](S. Arroyo, pers. comm. 2008).
