This species is known only from Rama Mese on the eastern side of the island of Flores in Indonesia, although it might occur a little more widely.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in bushes and trees in tropical dry forest and shrubland, and presumably lays its eggs on the ground and breeds by direct development.
There is no information on its population status. The most recent specimens were collected in 1997.
There is little information on specific threats to this species, but it would presumably suffer from extensive habitat loss.
It does not occur in any protected area. More research and survey work is needed to determine the range, population status and habitat requirements of this species.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainties as to its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
