From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is found in Myanmar (southern Tenasserim and the Nakhon Sri Thammarat mountains; Smith 1930) and Thailand (the Trang mountains); although its distinctive calls have also been heard in Malaysia (in the forest of the Thai-Malay border region hills). It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. It has been recorded at altitudes of about 300-600 m asl (Smith, 1930).

Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits the forest floor near, yet above streams in closed-canopy rainforest. Distinctive calls are also heard in old rubber plantations. It is suspected to breed by direct development (Dubois 1987) analogous to Limnonectes hascheanus.

Population

Where this species occurs it tends to be rather common, but individuals are very difficult to find.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

A primary conservation concern would be the loss of closed-canopy rainforest habitat caused by deforestation.

Conservation Actions

Safeguarding the existing protected areas of Peninsular Thailand, and ideally adding Ulu Muda to the protected areas of Peninsular Malaysia, should safeguard the species' survival. Status surveys and conservation biology studies would be welcome.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution and presumed large population.
