Taxonomy [top]

Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family
ANIMALIA CHORDATA AMPHIBIA ANURA CRAUGASTORIDAE

Scientific Name: Pristimantis sanguineus
Species Authority: (Lynch, 1998)
Synonym(s):
Eleutherodactylus sanguineus Lynch, 1998

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Near Threatened ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Fernando Castro, Maria Isabel Herrera, John Lynch
Reviewer(s): Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)
Justification:
Listed as Near Threatened because its Extent of Occurrence is probably not much greater than 20,000 km2, and its habitat is in decline, thus making the species close to qualifying for Vulnerable.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description: This species is known from Antioquia, Choco, Risaralda and Valle del Cauca Departments on the western flank of the Cordillera Occidental, Colombia, from 50-1,500m asl. It probably occurs more widely, in particular between known sites.

Population [top]

Population: This is a locally abundant species.
Population Trend: Decreasing

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: It is restricted to closed-canopy forest alongside streams in primary forest. Breeding is by direct development.
Systems: Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): It is probably affected by ongoing forest loss in some parts of its range, especially for agriculture and logging, as well as by fumigation of illegal crops. However, much of its habitat is relatively remote from human influence, though this is likely to change in the near future. Other high-altitude, stream-breeding Eleutherodactylus species have undergone declines possibly due to chytridiomycosis, so this might be a potential future threat.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Some populations are within Parque Nacional de Las Orquídeas and Parque Nacional Natural Tatamá. Given the possible threat of chytridiomycosis this species should be monitored carefully.
