From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This poorly understood species is known only from Rwanda, Burundi and the Kivu Highlands of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. It is believed to be a montane species, and the type locality is at 1,800m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is presumably a species of montane forest, and, if it is similar to other members of the genus, it breeds in streams.


There is no recent information on the population status of this species. There have been no records for many years due to lack of herpetological work within its range.

Population Trend


Major Threats

No information is available on threats to it.

Conservation Actions

It is likely to occur in several protected areas, such as Nyungwe National Park in Rwanda, but information on which specific protected areas it occurs in is lacking.
