From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known with certainty from Da Ban, Lam Dong Province, southern Viet Nam (Smith 1922, in Bourret 1942). It has also been recorded from Moray (Kon Tum), Soklang (Gia Lai) and Phu Quoc Island (Kien Giang) by Sang and Cuc (1996), but there is some doubt associated with these identifications (although they are included in this account, and have been used when mapping its distribution). It has been recorded at about 200m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is found in swampy riverside floodplain areas in lowland forest. Its breeding habits are unknown, but it probably reproduces by larval development in water.


It is known from a single collection from the 1920s. Subsequent records from scattered locations are associated with some doubt, so this species' population status is not known.
