This species is restricted to western Nepal and northern India (Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal). It is present at elevations of 1,000-2,400m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It is associated with montane subtropical forests and streams. Breeding takes place in streams; however, there is no information available on larval ecology.
It is reportedly a fairly common species.
Loss of available habitat through the localized clearance of forest is a major threat. It is also threatened by changes in waterway management, for example, following dam construction.
It is not known whether or not this species occurs in any protected areas, though there are several within its range. It is protected by national legislation in India.
