Range Description

This species is known only from the type locality, Buta, in north-central Democratic Republic of Congo.

Habitat and Ecology

There is no information on its habitat and ecological preferences, although its requirements are presumably similar to those of most other members of the genus, and it likewise presumably breeds in water.

Population

There is no information on the population status of this species, and there have been no subsequent records of it since its discovery, presumably due to a lack of herpetological work within its range.

Population Trend

unknown

Conservation Actions

It has not been recorded from any protected areas. Research is needed on the distribution and population status, ecology, use and trade, and threats to this species.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)

Rationale
