From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from 10 km north of Gandhigram, in Changlang District, Arunachal Pradesh, northeastern India (Sarkar and Ray, 2006). It could occur more widely, and no information is available on its elevational range.

Habitat and Ecology

The only record was from dense forest on the north bank of the Noa Dihing River, in a tree hollow about 3m above ground (Sarkar and Ray, 2006). The follow was full of dead leaves and rain water (Sarkar and Ray, 2006). It presumably breeds by direct development.


There has been no information since its discovery in 1988 (Sarkar and Ray, 2006). Several frogs were found at that time, two of which were collected (Sarkar and Ray, 2006).

Population Trend


Major Threats

No information is available.

Conservation Actions

It is not known whether or not it occurs in any protected areas, though it could be in the Namdapha Tiger Reserve. Surveys are needed to determine its distribution, abundance, ecological requirements, threats and conservation needs.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little known about its extent of occurrence, area of occupancy, status and ecological requirements.
