From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known with certainty only from Surat Thani and Nakhon Si Thammarat Provinces, Peninsular Thailand (Pauwels and Chérot, 2006). The distribution map should be considered highly provisional.

Habitat and Ecology

Nothing is known of its ecological requirements. It presumably breeds in small pools by larval development.

Population

This is an extremely poorly known species, and there is no information on its abundance.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

There is no information on threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

It is not known from any protected areas. Research is needed to clarify its taxonomic status, and, if it is a valid species, surveys are needed to determine its geographic distribution, abundance, ecological requirements, threats and conservation needs.

Taxonomic Notes

We follow Pauwels and Chérot (2006) in considering Kaloula aureata to be a separate species K. macrocephala, contrary to Ohler (2003).
