Habitat and Ecology
It lives in permanent swamps in lowland rainforest and disturbed forest. It is known to persist in degraded habitats and breeds in swamps.
It is very abundant where it occurs.
No threats are known. It does well in disturbed areas.
Its distribution needs to be properly documented. It is not known from any protected areas.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence, as currently known, is probably less than 20,000 km2, it is tolerant of a degree of habitat modification, it has a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
