From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is currently known only from Phu Luang Wildlife Sanctuary and Phu Kradueng National Park in Loei Province, northern Thailand, at 1,100 to 1,500m asl (Stuart et al., 2006). It might be found to occur a little more widely, but surveys in nearby Laos have not located it (B.L. Stuart pers. comm.). However, specimens from new localities in Thailand, that are probably this species, are currently being examined (Y. Chuaynkern, pers. comm.).

Habitat and Ecology

This species has been found at night in intact hilly evergreen forest on boulders, rock outcrops and fallen trees within a few metres of swift, rocky streams and cascades, and in one case a slow stream (Stuart et al., 2006). It presumably breeds in streams by larval development. It probably cannot adapt to anthropogenic habitats (B.L. Stuart pers. comm.).

Population

It can be a locally abundant species.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

No information is currently available on threats to this species. All records so far are from protected areas.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in Phu Luang Wildlife Sanctuary and Phu Kradueng National Park (Stuart et al., 2006). Surveys are needed to determine its geographic distribution, adundance, ecological requirements, threats and conservation needs.
