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.
Clear-cutting of lowland forest habitat is the main threat to this species.
It is present in Sumasan National Park in Kalimantan.
