Range Description

This newly discovered species is known only from the Reserve de Faune de la Lope in Gabon. It probably occurs more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

Assuming that it is similar to other members of the genus, it is associated with rocky places near streams in lowland rainforest, and breeds in streams.

Population

Its population status is unknown.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

If it occurs more widely than is currently known, it is probably being affected by forest loss in other parts of its range.

Conservation Actions

Its conservation will be facilitated by the fact that it occurs in at least one protected area, the Reserve de Faune de la Lope.
