From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

The species is found from Malaysia (Peninsular, Penang, Sabah and Sarawak) and Indonesia (Sumatra and Kalimantan), with a single old record from southern Thailand (Nakhon Si Thammarat) (Berry 1975, Taylor 1962). It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. Altitudinal records range between 100 and 1,350 m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is a leaf-litter frog that has been recorded from lowland and submontane primary rainforest and from somewhat disturbed habitats. Adults disperse widely through the forest and breed in rain pools of varying size.

Population

It is a reasonably common species.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Severe deforestation is the principal threat, resulting in contraction and fragmentation of its habitat.

Conservation Actions

Maintenance of existing protected areas and watershed protection forests in which the species occurs are the only conservation measures required at present.
