From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is currently known only from two closely situated localities adjacent to Rakhine Yoma Elephant Sanctuary, of the Gwa Township area, Rakhine Division, Myanmar, where it occurs below 100m asl. It is expected that additional surveys within the region will reveal further populations.

Habitat and Ecology

This is a species of primary evergreen forest, which is a seasonal breeder in freshwater habitats, and which is presumed to have a larval development breeding strategy.

Population

It was found to be numerous at the type locality, although this might be a seasonal effect.

Population Trend

Decreasing

Major Threats

It is threatened by logging of its forest habitat.

Conservation Actions

It might occur within Rakhine Yoma Elephant Sanctuary, although the suitability of the forest habitat for the species within this area needs further research.
