Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits hilly areas and is probably a forest inhabitant that breeds in streams, like most other members of the genus.
This is a rare species.
It could be threatened in the future by tourism, if this is not carefully managed.
It occurs within Daweishan National Nature Reserve.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
