Adelphobates castaneoticus uses the woody husks of Brazil nut trees, Bertholletia excelsa, (without nuts and filled with water) as oviposition sites. Three specimens of A. castaneoticus were found near Brazil nut trees in Novo Progresso, Pará State, Brazil. This record increases the distribution this species more than 500 km to the southwest.
