This species is known from 250-1,500 m altitude in southern and southwestern China in Xizang, Yunnan, Guizhou, Hainan, Guangxi and Guangdong Provinces, as well as in Lao Cai and Ha Giang Provinces, Viet Nam. It presumably occurs in other neighbouring countries.
Habitat and Ecology
It inhabits forests and shrublands. It breeds in ditches and temporary pools.
It is very common in Hainan (Lu Shunqin pers. comm.)
Agriculture and logging are probably impacting its habitat when these are carried out too intensively.
Many protected areas in the region supports this species.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
This species might be a synonym of Kurixalus verrucosus (Ohler et al. 2000).
