From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from its approximate type locality of Boutry, in south-western Ghana.

Habitat and Ecology

There is no information on its habitat and ecological requirements, which are assumed to be similar to those of most other members of the genus. This species therefore also probably breeds in water.

Population

There have been no recent records of it, presumably due to taxonomic confusion.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

There is no information on threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

Its taxonomic validity needs to be reassessed.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)

Rationale

Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing doubts as to its taxonomic validity as well as absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.

Taxonomic Notes

This species cannot be matched to any currently known species in the wild, and it is perhaps a synonym of some other species (Rödel pers. comm.).
