This species is known from Nape, on the Khammon Plateau, in the Nakai-Nam Theun area of Lao People's Democratic Republic near the Vietnamese border (Bourret 1942). It probably occurs more widely.
Habitat and Ecology
This species is thought likely to live in forest and to breed by larval development in water.
It has not been recorded again since a single specimen was collected in 1926-27, despite herpetofaunal surveys in the general area (Stuart 1999), so there is no information regarding its population status.
Threats to this species are unknown.
The type locality is on the edge of Nakai Nam Theun National Biodiversity Conservation Area.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
This species is stated to be similar to Limnonectes macrodon (Bourret 1942).
