Biology and notes. Valdiviomyia darwini  is associated mainly with the Valdivian evergreen forest, which has been extensely fragmented by urbanization, croplands and forestry ( Miranda et al., 2017). All basic aspects of its biology and ecology remain unknown.

Conservation status. VU under B2ab (iii) using AOO = 36 km 2 and nine localities (or subpopulations); EOO = 69,550 km 2.
