This species is known only from the type locality, Mauda (Uele), in north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. When mapping its range this can only be done approximately, owing to a lack of specificity regarding the type locality.
Habitat and Ecology
This species' habitat and ecological preferences are not known, although they are presumably similar to other members of the genus, and it likewise probably also breeds in water by larval development.
The population status of this species is unknown. There are no recent records, presumably due to a lack of herpetological work within its range.
There is no information on threats to this species.
It has not been recorded in any protected areas. Further research is needed into the distribution and population status, ecology, threats, and use and trade of this species.
