It inhabits spring-fed marshes in conifer forests, and breeds in very small streams.
It is probably quite a rare species.
The major threat is habitat encroachment for agriculture and human settlement.
Part of the range of this species is within the Gaoligong Shan Nature Reserve, now part of the Three Parallel Rivers World Heritage Site.
Red List Status
Listed as Vulnerable because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 20,000 km2, its distribution is severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its forest habitat in Yunnan Province, China
