|Scientific Name:||Eleutherodactylus glandulifer|
|Species Authority:||Cochran, 1935|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Critically Endangered A3c ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Blair Hedges, Richard Thomas|
|Reviewer(s):||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)|
Listed as Critically Endangered because of an expected population decline of greater than 80% over the next ten years, predicted from severe degradation of the species' habitat on the Massif de la Hotte, Haiti.
|Range Description:||This species is restricted to the Massif de la Hotte, Haiti, at an altitude of 300-1,886m asl.|

|Population:||At the time of the last survey in 1991 it was known to be moderately common.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It is a terrestrial species, found in closed-canopy forests, and appears to be associated with streamside habitats. Eggs are laid on the ground and it breeds by direct development.|
|Major Threat(s):||Severe habitat destruction is taking place in its range, primarily due to logging by local people (charcoaling) and slash-and-burn agriculture.|
|Conservation Actions:||It is known to occur in the Parc National Macaya, but there is no management of this area for conservation, and the habitat continues to be destroyed. Urgent site-based action is required in the Massif de la Hotte to conserve the remaining habitat in the area, in order to ensure the persistence of this species as well as other threatened amphibians known only from this area. Survey work is also necessary to determine the population status of this species.|
