This species is known from the entire mountain ridge along the western side of Sumatra, in Indonesia. It was rediscovered in the late 1990s, and has now been recorded widely. It occurs above 700m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in primary submontane and montane rainforest along streams. It does not appear to tolerate forest disturbance. It breeds in streams.
It is a common species, especially around 1,000m asl.
The major threat is the loss of its montane forest habitat, though forest loss is less serious at higher altitudes in Sumatra.
It occurs in Gunung Leuser, Kerinci-Seblat and Barisan-Selatan National Parks.
