From the IUCN Red List Species Account:
This species has been found only in central and southern Kalimantan in Borneo, Indonesia, below 300m asl. It is likely to occur more widely than current records suggest.
Habitat and Ecology
It is known only from the floor of lowland rainforests, where it is associated with slow-flowing streams in which it is likely to breed by larval development.
There is no information on its population status.
The major threat to this species is habitat loss due to logging.
It has not been recorded from any protected areas. Effective preservation of lowland forest in Kalimantan is essential for the conservation of this species.
