From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from most of mainland Thailand and Cambodia, and from northern Lao People's Democratic Republic (Taylor, 1962; Stuart, 1999; Ohler, et. al, 2002). It has been recorded at altitudes ranging from 200 (Inger and Colwell, 1977) to 800m asl, although Taylor (1962) recorded the species at 2,200m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits small streams in evergreen or dense deciduous forest. It breeds in streams by larval development.


It is generally a relatively common species in appropriate habitat.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The main threats involve forest degradation processes, which open up the canopy and interfere with the hydrological cycle, for example agricultural encroachment, logging and fires.

Conservation Actions

It is known or suspected to inhabit most protected areas, in mainland Thailand and adjacent Lao People's Democratic Republic and Cambodia, which contain streams in evergreen or mixed deciduous forest in hill or mountain areas.
