Reviewer/s: McKnight, M. (Global Mammal Assessment Team) & Amori, G. (SmallNonvolant Mammal Red List Authority) Contributor/s:Justification: Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of information on its extent of occurrence, threats,status, and ecological requirements. Perhaps with new survey methods it will be found at morelocalities. History: 1996–Critically Endangered Geographic Range [top] RangeDescription: This species is known from widely disjunct locations in Costa Rica (San Joaquín deDota and Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve), Panama (Chiriquí, 24 km north-northwestof San Félix), and the western slope of Ecuador (Mt. Pichincha and Mindo) (McCain et al.  2007). The species has been recorded from 1,275 m asl to 2,000 m asl, althoughthere is some uncertainty of this maximum elevation (possibly to 2,600 m) (see McCain et al.  2007).

Timm and F. Reid pers.comm.). PopulationTrend:  Unknown Habitat and Ecology [top] Habitat andEcology: This species is poorly known. It is found in high elevation oak and cloud forest inCosta Rica. In Panama, it was found in disturbed, brushy, oak forest (Reid 1997). Systems: Terrestrial Threats [top] MajorThreat(s): The local threat to the species in Panama is copper mining, and the known locality is nowessentially gone (although others may exist in Panama) – also this elevation on the Pacificslope of Panama has largely been eliminated by development. There are no known majorthreats to the species in Costa Rica or Ecuador, although there is considerable http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/full/20222/0/print2 of 37/24/13 7:26 PM
