This species is known only from a single specimen from Patsarlandam, northern Myanmar, close to the Chinese border (Smith 1940).
Habitat and Ecology
The habitat requirements of this species are not known. It presumably breeds in water by larval development, like most other members of its genus.
It has not been recorded since it was first collected in 1937-39, so its population status is unknown. Results from recent surveys of the type locality are not yet available (Wogan pers. comm.).
Threats to this species are unknown.
Its type locality is within Hkakabo Razi National Park. Further research might be required to resolve its taxonomic status.
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.
It is likely that Rhacophorus gongshanensis from southwestern Yunnan Province, China, is a synonym of this species (Wilkinson and Rao 2004).
