Samudio, R. & Pino, J. Reviewer/s: McKnight, M. (Global Mammal Assessment Team) & Amori, G.(Small Nonvolant Mammal Red List Authority) Contributor/s:Justification: Listed as Near Threatened because although its extent of occurrence is less than 20,000 km 2 , it occursin several protected areas and the extent and quality of its habitat may be declining only in parts of itsrange. This species is restricted to mature forest and it appears to no longer occur in one previouslyknown location. This makes it close to qualifying for Vulnerable under the B1 criterion if the declinein known locations continues and if the distribution becomes severely fragmented or restricted to lessthan 6 locations. Geographic Range [top] RangeDescription: This species is known form intermediate elevations in western Panamá (Chiriquí region) and on the Azuero Peninsula (Musser and Carleton 2005). It is known from1,000 to 1,500 m (Carleton 1989).The species is known from two disjunct populations, which are being looked attaxonomically (Timm pers. comm.).

It may no longer occur in the AzueroPeninsula, where it has been looked for recently without success (Reid pers. comm.). PopulationTrend:  Unknown Habitat and Ecology [top] Habitat andEcology: This species is found in mature forest. Its biology is poorly known; it is nocturnaland terrestrial (Reid 1997).
