This species is known only from the type specimens collected at "Toungoo" (Bourret 1942), in the Bago Yoma Mountains, in Myanmar.
Habitat and Ecology
There is no information available regarding the habitat requirements of this species. However, it presumably breeds in water by larval development.
It has not been reported since it was first collected, despite recent surveys of the type locality (Wogan pers. comm.).
This main threats to the habitat in the Bago Yoma area are extensive wildfires and extensive logging.
Taxonomic confirmation of this species' status is needed (compared with other species such as Rana macrodactyla, for example).
