From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This Bornean endemic has been found at many sites in Sabah, and in adjacent parts of Sarawak and Kalimantan, from 200-1,500m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in closed-canopy forests, and breeding occurs in small, clear, rocky streams.

Population

There are no estimates of subpopulation status, but it is not rare at sites where it has been found.

Population Trend

decreasing

Major Threats

The main threat to this species is clearance of its forest habitat.

Conservation Actions

It is found in several large parks in Sabah, Sarawak and east Kalimantan.

Red List Status

Near Threatened (NT)

Rationale

Listed as Near Threatened since although this species is still relatively widely distributed, it depends on streams in areas of undisturbed forest habitat, and so its Area of Occupancy is probably not much greater than 2,000 km2, and the extent and quality of its habitat is declining very rapidly due to widespread forest loss within its range, thus making the species close to qualifying for Vulnerable.
