This species is currently known from southwestern and southern Yunnan (Longchuan, Yingjiang, Pingbian, Luchun and Hekou Counties), in China. It has been recorded from 1,150-1,600m asl. It might have a wider distribution than is currently known, and must occur in neighbouring countries.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits shrubland in river valleys. Its breeding habitats are not known, and could be by either larval or direct development.
It is a common species, but it is very small and easily overlooked.
Agriculture and small-scale collecting of wood are major threats to the species' habitat.
The range of this species includes the Daweishan and Xishuangbanna National Nature Reserves.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
