From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from northern Myanmar and extreme north-eastern India. At present it is known only from the following localities: Putao Plain (the type locality) in Kachin State, northern Myanmar; the area 20-30km to the east of the type locality in Putao Plain in Kachin State, northern Myanmar; Htamanthi, in northern Myanmar on the border with India; and extreme north-eastern India in Arunachal Pradesh and possibly in Assam. It is presumed to occur in between these localities, and probably also elsewhere, but due to lack of sampling in Myanmar and north-eastern India it has not yet been recorded more widely. Recent records from Myanmar are at 556-640m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This is a species of subtropical forest that has also been found in slightly degraded habitats near very small villages. No information is known about its breeding habits, but it presumably breeds in water by larval development.


It appears not to be a common species, and only six were encountered during a four month survey in northern Myanmar.

Population Trend


Major Threats

There is some limited habitat loss taking place due to subsistence agriculture, but overall the forest within its range is not significantly threatened at the moment.

Conservation Actions

In northern Myanmar it has been found in Hkakabo Razi National Park and Htamanthi Protected Area.
