This species is known only from Sui Kat, in the Lang Bian plateau in southern Viet Nam, where it was collected at 1,000m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
The habitat requirements of this species were not reported beyond that the collection locality was at 1,000m asl. It presumably breeds in water by larval development, like other members of the genus.
It is known only from a single specimen collected in 1918 and it has not been recorded since, so there is no information regarding its population status.
Threats to this species are unknown.
Establishing the taxonomic validity of this species is required before further conservation measures can be considered.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing doubts as to its taxonomic validity, extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
This species is possibly a synonym of Chiromantis vittatus (see Bourret 1942) or C. doriae.
