This species is known only from two locations in Emei and Hongya Counties in central Sichuan Province, China, at 1,050-1,800m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits forests, breeding in streams where the larvae also develop.
It is relatively abundant at both locations.
The major threat is habitat loss and degradation due primarily to smallholder farming activities; disturbance from tourists is an increasing threat.
The range of this species partly overlaps two protected areas, namely Emeishan Natural Heritage Reserve and Wawushan National Forest Park.
Red List Status
Listed as Endangered because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 5,000 km2, its distribution is severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat in Sichuan Province, China.
