The Oaxacan pigmy salamander is a very small species, growing to less than 50 mm in total length. It is ground dwelling in high altitude pine-oak forest, although little more is known about this species because very few individuals have been collected. It was recently rediscovered, but remains extremely rare and its remaining habitat is threatened by logging, agriculture, and human settlement.
