This species is known only from Medog County in Xizang Autonomous Region, China, at around 1,500m asl. It possibly ranges more widely, and its distributional limits are still unclear.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits forests at the edge of a lake, where it lives under moss and probably breeds on land. It presumably breeds by direct development, like other species of the genus.
It has a small population size.
There are no known threats to this species.
Its only known locality is not within any protected area. Further surveys are needed to determine whether or not the species has a larger range than is currently known, and to gather further information regards its population status and habitat requirements.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainties as to its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
