This species occurs in cloud forest, from 1050–1400 m elevation. It is known only from the slopes of Volcán Atitlán, where it is sympatric with R. isthmica. At the type locality it seemed to occur just below the zone of high abundance of R. isthmica, at the lower edge of the cloud forest and at the transition to extensive coffee plantations at lower elevations. The six known specimens are from Winkler samples of sifted leaf litter.
Anterior labral lobe bilobed or bidentate on each side of medial notch, with ectal lobule longer than mesal lobule; masticatory margin of mandible with two teeth; squamiform setae of first gastral tergite abundant, short, 2 ×longer than wide; HW 0.49–0.51.
Found most commonly in these habitats: 1 times found in riparian forest, 1 times found in cloud forest, 1 times found in riparian wet forest.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 3 times ex sifted leaf litter.
Collected most commonly using these methods: 3 times MaxiWinkler.
Elevations: collected from 1056 - 1400 meters, 1177 meters average
