From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from two small areas in western Borneo: Merkata, in the Kenepai Mountains, in western Kalimantan (Indonesia); and extreme western Sarawak (Malaysia) near Sematan. Records from Sabah (Malaysia) in northern Borneo are not confirmed. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites.

Habitat and Ecology

It is known only from lowland peat swamp forest. Breeding is presumably by larval development in water.


There are no estimates of population status available.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Clear-cutting of lowland forest habitat is the main threat to this species.

Conservation Actions

It is present in Sumasan National Park in Kalimantan.
