The Parjacti treefrog has only been formally collected once in the 1970s, and so very little is known about this species. It was taken at night from a door knob at the agricultural customs inspection station in Parjacti, Bolivia. Other species within the Hyloscirtus genus are closely associated with bromeliads and lay eggs that develop into tadpoles in water. Despite numerous intensive field surveys since 1988, it has not been encountered again. The main threat to this species is the deterioration of its habitat due to agriculture, logging, and infrastructure development for human settlement. Strangely, this species has green bones, which is an unusual feature, even in amphibians!
