From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

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.

Population

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.).

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

Threats to this species are unknown.

Conservation Actions

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)

Rationale

Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.

Taxonomic Notes

It is likely that Rhacophorus gongshanensis from southwestern Yunnan Province, China, is a synonym of this species (Wilkinson and Rao 2004).
