From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known with certainty from several localities on Mindanao Island in the southern Philippines. Populations on Negros, Panay and Masbate Islands in the Philippines have also been attributed to this species, but might be considered a separate taxon in the future. Until this taxonomic revision is in place, they are still considered here as being part of this species. A population from Lore Lindu National Park in central Sulawesi, Indonesia, has also been attributed to this species but this is most likely in error (Brown pers. comm.) and hence it is not included here.

Habitat and Ecology

It inhabits and breeds in cool mountain streams and rivers in lower montane and lowland forest.


This is an uncommon species, even in its preferred habitats.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The most significant threat to this species is deforestation due to smallholder agriculture and logging.

Conservation Actions

Some populations of this species are protected in national parks, although more protected areas need to be established on Mindanao and Negros Islands, to protect the remaining forest on these islands. This species is in need of taxonomic revision.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainties as to its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
