This species is known from the type locality of Fan Si Pan mountain, at 1,900 m asl, Van Ban District, Lao Cai Province, at 1,400 m asl, and also from Ha Giang Province, at 1,100 m asl, in Viet Nam (Bain and Truong 2004, Orlov et al. 2008).
Habitat and Ecology
It has been recorded from evergreen forest close to a stream.
It is known only from a few specimens, so its population status cannot be determined.
The Ha Giang location is only in a small section of forest that is likely to be destroyed or degraded in the near future by agricultural encroachment and logging.
This species' type locality is within Hoang Lien Son National Park. Protection of the small section of forest in the Ha Giang location is needed.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been discovered, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
