From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from Myanmar (Zug et al., 1998), Thailand (Taylor, 1962), Lao People's Democratic Republic (Stuart, 1999), Cambodia and Viet Nam (Inger et al., 1999). It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. It has been recorded up to 1,700m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It breeds at grassy rain pools in deciduous forest in lowlands, up to lower montane evergreen forest. It has also been recorded from forest edge and scrubland. It has not been reported or encountered away from breeding pools.


It is generally relatively common where it occurs at breeding aggregations, but it is rarely as numerous as syntopic C. vittatus.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Clear cutting of forests is a threat to this species.

Conservation Actions

It inhabits a significant number of protected areas in Myanmar, Thailand, Lao People's Democratic Republic and Viet Nam. No measures beyond safeguarding the integrity of these protected areas are considered required at present.
