| The Oaxacan Pocket Gopher is known only from the type locality, the place in southern Mexico where it was found when it was first scientifically described and named, and because of this, it is classified as critically endangered.
Pocket gophers in this genus generally dig somewhat shallow burrows, and some are reported to come aboveground at night, but no specific information is available about this species.
