This species has been seen at localities in northern and central Kalimantan, Borneo. It is likely to occur more widely than current records suggest. Its altitudinal range is unclear, but it is believed that this species only occurs below 500m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in primary lowland rainforest. Very little is known of the ecology of this species, although it is known to have a very small clutch size, and it presumably breeds by larval development in water.
There is no information on the current population status of this species.
The greatest threat to this species is presumably deforestation.
It is present in Kayanmantran Protected Area. More effective preservation of areas of lowland rainforest in Kalimantan is essential for the conservation of this species.
