From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is restricted to Sulawesi, Indonesia where it is distributed throughout the island and on several offshore islands. It occurs from sea level to at least 1,000m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is assumed that this species has similar ecological requirements to R. chalconota in that it is typically seen on rocks and vegetation along small lowland forest streams, but is also seen away from streams in forest, or in highland areas. Primary and degraded forests are equally favoured, but a reasonably closed canopy and gently flowing water are essential. Adults disperse widely in the forest and may even be found in wooded gardens. Breeding occurs at quiet side pools of forest streams or in temporary ponds at the edges of forests. Tadpoles live in side pools and quiet, deeper sections of streams.

Population

Presumably it is common in lowland forest streams, and is less common but still present in highland areas.

Population Trend

Stable

Major Threats

There are currently no significant threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

It is presumably present in a number of protected areas.

Taxonomic Notes

We consider Hylarana mocquardii to be disctinct from H. chalconota following Iskandar and Colijn (2000).
