This recently described species is known only from the vicinity of the villages of Kodmin and Edib in the Bakossi Mountains, 1,000-1,350m asl, in western Cameroon, although it might be a bit more widespread.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in montane forest, often close to small streams; there is no information on its ability to tolerate changes to its habitat. Breeding takes place in springs and rivulets.
It is generally an uncommon species.
It is probably threatened by forest clearance for smallholder farming.
It does not occur in any protected areas, and its remaining habitat in the Bakossi Mountains requires urgent protection.
