This species is known only from its type locality at Yambata in northern Democratic Republic of Congo. Records from Cameroon are in error and refer to Phrynobatrachus accraensis. The location of the type locality is not absolutely clear, so attempts to map its distribution must be considered as approximate.
Habitat and Ecology
Its habitat and ecological requirements are presumably similar to those of most other members of the genus, and it probably also breeds in water.
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.
There is no information on threats to this species.
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)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
