Thorius narisovalis is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae. It is endemic to Mexico and only known from near its type locality, Cerro San Felipe, Oaxaca.[2] Its natural habitats are cloud forests and mixed forests. It lives under bark or under fallen trees.[1]

The species is negatively impacted by habitat loss caused by logging, agriculture, and human settlement. It has, however, declined even in suitable habitat.[1]
