This species is known only from a few localities (Barisan, Kerinci, Batang, Tarusan and Solok) in west Sumatra, Indonesia. The type locality is probably at around 1,200m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in montane forest, and the type specimen had unpigmented eggs, suggesting that the eggs are hidden in streams. The specimens collected recently in Solok were found along the banks of streams in forested habitat.
A very large series was recently collected from a new locality near Solok, and this is believed to be the first collection of this species since the original description. There has been very little surveying of this area so its population status is still unknown.
Threats to this species are unknown.
The type locality is in Kerinci Seblat National Park.
