This recently described species is known from the Lang Bian Plateau,
Lam Dong Province, and Buon Luoi, Gia-Lai Province, in Viet Nam, and
also from Huey Sapan in Lao People's Democratic Republic (although this
locality could not be located and has not been used when mapping this
species' range for this assessment). It might occur more widely.
Habitat and Ecology
It is presumably a lowland forest inhabitant that breeds in streams.
This species is known only from the type series.
The threats to it are not known, although it is likely to be impacted by forest loss due to smallholder farming, logging and human settlement.
It is not known if this species occurs in any protected areas.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status, threats and ecological requirements.
