This species is known only from its type locality, Cambondo, in Angola.
Habitat and Ecology
There is no direct information on its habitat and ecology, although it is likely to be a terrestrial species in lowland forest, and possibly other habitats. Like other members of the genus, it presumably breeds by direct development, and is not dependent upon water.
Its population status is unknown. There have been no records since its discovery, but this is probably largely due to the severe taxonomic problems associated with Arthroleptis species which makes it extremely hard to identify them in many parts of Africa.
There are major taxonomic problems with the genus Arthroleptis through much of Africa. In many cases, the available names can be referred only to museum specimens, not to animals in the field. This is because the identification of these species frequently depends more on their vocalizations than their morphology. This species is known from a single specimen, and it is not yet known whether or not it is a valid species.
