Very little is known about this species because it has rarely been seen; nearly 70 years passed from the formal discovery of the cave splayfoot salamander in the early 1940s, until it was seen again by a scientist in 2010.
Cave splayfoot salamanders are found crawling about on the damp walls in near-total darkness. Forest clearance around its former habitat has resulted in the drying out of caves that used to contain this species.
