Wikipedia Abstract

Craugastor anciano is a species of frog in the Craugastoridae family. It is endemic to the Cordillera de Celaque in Honduras. Its natural habitats are premontane and lower montane moist forests. It lives on the ground along streams. Craugastor anciano is an extremely rare species that might now be extinct. Chytridiomycosis is a possible reason, although also habitat loss is a threat.
