Cnemaspis goaensis is known from three locations, one each in Goa and Karnataka. Though general threats to this species are not known the areas from where this species is reported have undergone a decline in quality of habitat. The extent of occurrence is less than 1,000 km2, and though possibly an underestimate, is believed to be definitely less than 5,000 km2. It is therefore assessed as Endangered. It is recommended that more studies are needed to establish its distribution and impacts of threats on the species.
|Range Description:||Cnemaspis goaensis is endemic to India and is known from the forests of Poinguinim and Cotigao in Canacona taluka, South Goa, Goa (Sharma 1976) and Mattigattha, Uttara Kannada, Karnataka (S. Sondhi in litt. February 2011). It has also been recorded from Cotigao Wildlife Sanctuary (V.B. Giri pers. comm. March 2011). The estimated extent of occurrence between the known localities is less than 1,000 km2. However, this is probably an underestimate, partly due to the spatial configuration of the three known localities. This species occurs at elevations between 50 to 100 m asl.|
