The Atoyac minute salamander is a small species, growing to less than 40 mm in total length. It was formerly found in stream-side vegetation, living under logs and bark, but its habitat has largely been converted to coffee plantations and the remaining area is under threat of further human encroachment. It has not been seen since the early 1980s and may already be extinct.
