Habitat and Ecology
It lives inside lowland and montane forests, including riparian forests, and on forest edges, but not in more open areas. It is usually found on vegetation near streams. It breeds in streams and pools in streams.
It is a very common species.
The major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to wood plantations, logging, mining and human settlement.
It occurs in some protected areas.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
