This species is known only from Kerinci, on Sumatra, Indonesia. It is presumably a montane species, and occurs above 700m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
The type locality is montane forest, and this species is likely to breed in slow-flowing streams.
There have been no records since it was first described from five specimens, so its population status is unknown.
There is no information on specific threats to it, although habitat loss is taking place on the lower montane slopes as a result of smallholder farming and small-scale subsistence collection of wood.
The type locality is in Kerinci Seblat National Park.
