This taxon is known only from a single female specimen collected from the Akar (= Akah) River, Sarawak, Malaysia. As the specific collection locality on the Akah River could not be located, a distribution map cannot be completed for this species.

Habitat and Ecology

There are no details regarding its habitat and ecology, but it is presumably a lowland forest species that breeds in rain pools.

Population

It is known only from the holotype, so there is no information on its population status.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Taxonomic Notes

This species is known only from a single specimen that is very similar to Pelophryne guentheri. The taxonomic status of P. macrotis requires additional specimens in order to confirm its validity (Inger 1966).
