It has been recorded from primary and secondary forest, and it possibly also adapts to some anthropogenic disturbance. It presumably breeds by direct development, like other species of the genus.

Population

The population status of this species is not known, and there is very little recent information.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Agricultural development, for both crops and livestock, as well as logging, are major threats to this species’ habitat.
