Mexico, and is listed as vulnerable by the IUCN (2012). Its distribution is restricted to western Veracruz and the adjacent states of Hidalgo and Puebla, Mexico between 1200 and 2100 m a.s.l. However, there is an apparently separate population in central and southeastern Chiapas (and adjacent Oaxaca) (Lynch and Santos-Barrera, 2004). Despite being a relatively common species within its distribution range, little is known about its natural history, particularly about its diet. In a recent study… Expand

Dieta de la rana de hojarasca Craugastor rhodopis (Anura: Craugastoridae): una especie abundante en la región montañosa del este de México
TLDR
Although the composition of the diet was similar between sexes in C. rhodopis, it is suggested that intersexual competition for trophic resources is minimal, given differences in prey size consumed by males and females. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that while the Guerrero and Oaxaca populations have diverged only recently from one another, they appear to be presently isolated and may be distinguished by several distinct quantitative and qualitative morphological traits. Expand
