From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from Lombok (Sembalun - Museum Zoologicum Bogoriense (Research Center for Biology, Indonesian Institute of Sciences, LIPI) unpubl. data May 2017), Sumbawa (including Tambora - Museum Zoologicum Bogoriense (Research Center for Biology, Indonesian Institute of Sciences, LIPI) unpubl. data May 2017) and Flores in the Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia, where it occurs up to at least 1,200 m asl. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest.

Habitat and Ecology

This species is thought to live near forested streams like other members of the genus, and the larvae presumably develop in streams.


It is believed to be a common species, but the population trend is unknown. A week long survey in 2011 in east Lombok recorded this species (E. Arida pers. comm. May 2017).

Population Trend


Major Threats

Forest loss might be a problem for this species. On both Flores and Lombok, habitat loss is occurring due increasing human settlements and tourist infrastructure, especially on the western side of Flores (Indonesia Red List Assessment Workshop May 2017).

Conservation Actions

Conservation Actions
This species occurs in Gunung Rinjani Nature Reserve on Lombok, but there is probably less protection for the subpopulations on Sumbawa and Flores.

Research Needed
Surveys are needed to collect up-to-date information regarding the species' range, population status, habitat requirements, and threats.

Red List Status

Near Threatened (NT)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution and presumed large population.
