This species is known only from three specimens from the north-west of Taman Negara National Park in Pahang State, Peninsular Malaysia. Two of these were collected at 167 m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs in lowland dipterocarp forest, and is presumed to breed by larval development. Large black ants have been found in the stomachs of this species.
There is no information available on the population status of this species.
There are no significant known threats to it, given that it occurs in a protected area.
Taman Negara National Park is the only protected area from which it is currently known.
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.
When the first assessment for this species was published (in 2006) it was under the generic name Calluella. Calluella Stoliczka, 1872 is now recognised as a junior synonym of Glyphoglossus Gunther, 1869 "1868" (Peloso et al. 2016), hence the transfer of this species to the genus Gylyphoglossus. This is not a reassessment of the status of this species; instead it is an updated version of the original assessment to reflect this taxonomic change.
