Habitat and Ecology
It has been found in a breeding pond in a cultivated area on the outskirts of Pishin town (T. Papenfuss pers. comm. 2009). It appears to do well in traditional agricultural areas (T. Papenfuss pers. comm. 2009).
It was a common species when last seen on April 2005, where there were over 50 adults in a pond about 20 meters in diameter (T. Papenfuss pers. comm. 2009). It is thought to occur commonly in the general area (T. Papenfuss pers. comm. 2009).
There appear to be no major threats to this species as a whole.
No conservation actions are currently known for this species.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern because even though this species is known from a restricted area, it is common, adaptable, does not appear to be threatened, and it is presumed to range more widely than what is currently known.
We follow Frost (2009) in considering Pseudepidalea (now Bufotes) zugmayeri as a valid species.
