t is unknown whether this species is tolerant of disturbed environments.
No population status information is currently available for this species.
Although a large area of the Matang Range (including the type locality) is protected as Kubah National Park, the fringe areas of the Matang Range are rapidly being developed, and a significant increase in tourism in the park might cause environmental deterioration (Matsui 2009).
This species occurs within the Kubah National Park (Matsui 2009). However, due to potential threats in the fringe areas of the park, further conservation measures could be necessary (Matsui 2009). More information is needed on this species' distribution, population status, natural history and threats.
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 population status and ecological requirements. However, future information on whether threats affect the area where this species occurs might lead this species to qualify for a threatened category.
In the Philautus aurifasciatus group according to the original publication (Matsui 2009).
