Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2011
Date Assessed: 2009-06-30
Assessor(s): Castañeda, R.M., Castro, F. & Mayer, G.C.
Reviewer(s): Böhm, M., Collen, B. & Ram, M.

Anolis caquetae has been assessed as Data Deficient due to the lack of population and accurate distribution data available, as well as a lack of understanding about the impact of threat processes. This species is only known from its type locality. Further research should therefore be carried out on the distribution, population, and threats to this species before a more accurate assessment of the conservation status of A. caquetae can be made. If the threat of coca plantation development has a negative impact on the species and is not found elsewhere during surveys, it is likely to qualify for a threatened category in future reassessments.

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:This species is a lowland species found in seasonally flooded forest habitat.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The region around the species' type locality is remote, with few settlements and a very low population density. This area is well known for large coca plantations, however, the impact that the resulting habitat transformation and fragmentation of the habitat would have on the species is unknown (R.M. Castañeda pers. comm. 2010).

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: There are no known species-specific conservation measures in place for this species. Further research should be carried out into the population, distribution, and threats to this species.
