Range Description

This species is known only from the Abor Hills in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in India. The exact area within the Arbor Hills is not known, and so attempts to map its distribution can only be considered as approximate. This is a lowland species present at altitudes below 100m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This is a poorly known species associated with tropical moist forest. It presumably breeds by direct development, like most other species in the genus, but this requires confirmation.


Its population status is unknown, and there have been no records since it was first described.
