Habitat and Ecology
@It lives in primary and secondary forest, but not in open areas, where it is usually found along small mountain streams in the forest, in which it breeds. The males call from under large rocks or from rock crevices.
It appears to be a common species (as judged by the abundance of its larvae).
The major threats to this species are probably related to habitat loss due to agricultural development, wood plantations, livestock grazing, human settlement and logging.
It occurs in a few protected areas.
