This species is known only from the vicinity of Galela, on northern Halmahera Island, Maluku Province, Indonesia, at 670-760m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
Its habitat is unknown, but it presumably lives in rainforest and breeds by direct development.
There have been virtually no surveys for amphibians in the Maluku Islands for many years, and this species was last recorded in the late 1800s.
There are no data available on specific threats to this species, but extensive forest loss has been reported on Halmahera Island.
The distribution, habitat requirements and population status of this species need to be determined. It is not known from any protected areas.
