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.
Harvey (1996) synonymized Cochranella flavidigitata with N. bejaranoi.
