  1. 1- Conservation status is based on the current classification of the area within Belize's Natural Areas system. Core corresponds to the protected zone of the reserve. Buffer areas are outside the main core or are unprotected at the federal level 2- Connectivity refers explicitly to the continuity of area where C. ernesti-augusti is found. 3- Harvest is based on observation and personal communication with the owners of the land. 4- Altitude; 5- N/H A is number of individuals per hectare. Samples sizes per locality are in parenthesis.
