From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species occurs at Benavony and Manongaribo, in north-western Madagascar, and probably occurs widely in the low-altitude Sambirano forest zone. It is probably even more widespread than this, and might occur at Tsaratanana. Its recorded altitudinal range is 200-700m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is a species of pristine and slightly degraded forest close to primary forest. It presumably breeds in streams.

Population

Little information is available, but it is not particularly rare.

Population Trend

Decreasing

Major Threats

There is very rapid deforestation within its range due to subsistence agriculture (including livestock grazing), timber extraction, charcoaling, and expanding human settlements.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in the Réserve Spéciale de Manongarivo.
