Barrios frog is only known from a single locality. It lives around streams, where it breeds some time between January and May, although both adults and tadpoles are not strong swimmers. However, adults are powerful jumpers and, if threatened, will move very fast, leaping into the middle of the stream and seeking shelter under submerged stones or along the stream bank. During the day they remain hidden under stones in areas with running water. At night they emerge and can be found on the stones in the stream or along the bank. This species is threatened by habitat destruction resulting from wood extraction and the establishment of pine plantations.
