|Scientific Name:||Abronia bogerti|
|Species Authority:||Tihen, 1954|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Data Deficient ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Cox, N., Chanson, J.S. & Stuart, S.N. (Global Reptile Assessment Coordinating Team)|
Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, population status and ecological requirements.
|Range Description:||This species is known only from the type specimen collected "north of Niltepec, between Cerro Atravesado and Sierra Madre, Oaxaca" Mexico (Tihen 1954). It was probably collected between 762 and 1372 m asl ('2,500 and 4,500 feet'( (Tihen 1954).|

|Population:||The species is known only from a single record collected more than 50 years ago.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species appears to be a canopy species of lower montane forest. It is likely to be largely arboreal, and as such populations require forested areas to persist.|
|Major Threat(s):||The species is threatened by ongoing deforestation and degradation of montane forests, principally through conversion of land to agricultural use.|
|Conservation Actions:||It has not been recorded from any protected areas, and there is a need to protect suitable habitat where it remains. This species is protected by Mexican law under the category Pr (Special Protection). Further research is needed into the range, ecology and threats to this little known species.|
