|Scientific Name:||Telmatobius philippii|
|Species Authority:||Cuevas and Formas, 2002|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Data Deficient ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Alberto Veloso, Ramón Formas|
|Reviewer(s):||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)|
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little known about its extent of occurrence, area of occupancy, status and ecological requirements.
|Range Description:||This species is known at only a single locality, Ollagüe, in El Loa Province, Chile (21° 13'S; 68° 15'W), at 3,800m asl.|

|Population:||It is only known from a single collection made in 1998 when a few animals were found. No one has returned to this site since.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This is a riparian, semi-aquatic frog, occurring in streams and small rivers in the high Andes, and which is not known to occur in modified or degraded habitats. Breeding takes place in streams.|
|Major Threat(s):||The threats to this species are not well known. Telmatobius species living at high altitudes might be particularly prone to becoming infected with chytridiomycosis, but this has yet to be reported for T. peruvianus.|
|Conservation Actions:||It does not occur in any protected area. Strict monitoring of population and inclusion in national legislation as DD is needed.|
