The few known specimens of P. loxanensis have been taken from sifted leaf litter samples in cloud forests and secondary vegetation above 2000 m near the southern Ecuadorian town of Loja. The site is mostly secondary vegetation ranging from trees forming a loose canopy approximately 15 m high to more open bracken-fern dominated understorey with scattered trees and shrubs. This species is sympatric with Protalaridris leponcei at Reserva Biológica San Francisco.
