From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from Nape, on the Khammon Plateau, in the Nakai-Nam Theun area of Lao People's Democratic Republic near the Vietnamese border (Bourret 1942). It probably occurs more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

This species is thought likely to live in forest and to breed by larval development in water.


It has not been recorded again since a single specimen was collected in 1926-27, despite herpetofaunal surveys in the general area (Stuart 1999), so there is no information regarding its population status.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)
