From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from the vicinity of the type locality of Monogaga, a small area near the coast of south-western Côte d’Ivoire between Sassandra and San Pedro. It probably occurs more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

It is known only from the type locality, where it was found in a plantation, so it is not confined to primary forest. It presumably breeds in water and develops via a free-living, aquatic larval stage like other members of the genus.

Population

There is no recent information on its population status, but given the amount of survey work that has been carried out in the general area, it must be very rare.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

Nothing is known about threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

It has not been recorded from any protected areas. Research is required on its population status and distribution, ecology and threats to this species.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)

Rationale

Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.

Taxonomic Notes

Although there have been no recent records of this species, even though it occurs in a well-surveyed region, it appears to be taxonomically valid (M.-O. Rödel pers. comm.).

This species was under the generic name Amietophrynus but is now treated under Sclerophrys (Frost 2016).

This is an amended assessment created to account for the change in generic name.
