The EOO of its current mapped range is 1,148 km2.
Habitat and Ecology
This species is found in the Angolan western escarpment evergreen forest. It apparently occurs in swamps in forest, and presumably breeds in water (although this is not known for certain). Most, of the forest along the escarpment is secondary forest, with large areas of low intensity agricultural land, such as abandoned coffee plantations (Caceres 2013).
The population status of this species is unknown. There are no recent records, presumably due to lack of herpetological work within its range.
The Kumbira Forest is the largest remaining and single most representative area of the central Angolan Scarp. If this species is endemic to the Angolan escarpment forest, the rapid deforestation for agriculture in the area is a potential threat. Farming for subsistence is increasing, but also for selling crops in Luanda, including bananas, tomatoes, pineapples and pumpkins. Charcoal production and logging has also been observed in the area (Caceres 2013).
It has not been recorded in any protected areas.
Research is required on the distribution and population status, ecology, use and trade, and threats to this species.
