From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species ranges from northern and central Angola, through southern Democratic Republic of Congo to western Burundi. Its range is very poorly understood, and the distribution map should be considered as approximate only, since it occurs in an area where there has been very little herpetological work.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in leaf-litter, presumably in savannah woodlands and forests. It breeds by direct development. Its adaptability to altered habitats is unknown.

Population

It is apparently extremely common, at least in parts of its range.

Population Trend

stable

Major Threats

There is no information on major threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in the Upemba National Park in southern Democratic Republic of Congo, and presumably in other protected areas. As with other species of this genus, taxonomic research is needed to clarify the identity of this taxon. More information is needed on this species' distribution, natural history and threats.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution and presumed large population across West Central Africa.

Taxonomic Notes

There are major taxonomic problems with the genus Arthroleptis through much of Africa. In many cases, the available names can be referred only to museum specimens, not to animals in the field. This is because the identification of these species frequently depends more on their vocalizations than their morphology.
