From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from Kuala Teki in the Gunong Tahan mountain complex in central Peninsular Malaysia.

Habitat and Ecology

It is known only from the flanks of the Gunong Tahan mountain complex, presumably in primary rainforest. If it is like other members of the genus, it breeds by larval development, perhaps in rain-filled cavities.

Population

Its population status is unknown and it has not been reported since 1922, but the absence of records might be indicative of a lack of survey efforts rather than an absence of the species.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

Threats to this species are unknown.

Conservation Actions

The only known locality is at the core of Taman Negara National Park, Peninsular Malaysia's largest protected area. Safeguarding the park should help conserve the 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.
