From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is currently known only from the general vicinity of Mang Canh village, in Konplong District, Kon Tum province, in the central highlands of Viet Nam at 1,150-1,250m asl (Orlov et al., 2006). It is expected to occur more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

The species is known only from tropical mountain rainforest, along the banks of fast-flowing streams (Orlov et al., 2006). Vocalizing males sit on the rocks, fallen trunks and wide leaves of plants along the banks of the streams (Orlov et al., 2006). It presumably breeds in streams by larval development.

Population

It is abundant along streams in its only known location, with eight frogs being found along a 100m length of stream (Orlov et al., 2006).

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

There is no information on threats to this species.

Conservation Actions
