Habitat and Ecology
This species inhabits lowland tropical forest habitats near streams (Iskandar and Mumpuni 2004, Kurniati 2009, D. Iskandar and A. Hamidy pers. comm. May 2017). It may be tolerant of slight habitat disturbance (D. Iskandar and A. Hamidy pers. comm. May 2017). This species is presumed to breed in streams, adopting a larval development breeding strategy.
This species is known only from a few specimens, therefore information on its population size and trends is not available.
It occurs in the buffer zone of Kerinci Seblat National Park, which is currently well-protected. There are no known threats affecting the species (D. Iskandar and A. Hamidy pers. comm. May 2017).
This species occurs in the buffer zone of Kerinci Seblat National Park and likely occurs within the boundary of the park.
Studies on its distribution, population size and trends, and natural history are needed.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
This species is listed as Least Concern because, although the distribution is relatively limited, extent of occurrence (EOO) of 11,337 km2, there are no current threats and the species may be somewhat tolerant to disturbed habitats.
