From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known from northern Borneo, in Sarawak (Malaysia) and Kalimantan (Indonesia). It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. It is present below 200m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It has been recorded only in primary lowland rainforest. It is presumed to breed in temporary water pools, like most other species of the genus.

Population

There is no information on the current population status of this species.

Population Trend

decreasing

Major Threats

The rapid pace of logging of lowland rainforests is a major threat to the species' habitat.

Conservation Actions

It is known from at least three protected areas in Borneo (including Gunung Mulu and Kayan Mentarang National Parks). Improved protection of lowland forest is the main conservation measure required for this species.

Red List Status

Vulnerable (VU)

Rationale

Listed as Vulnerable because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 20,000 km2, its distribution is severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its forest habitat on Borneo.
