It is very common in Hainan (Lu Shunqin pers. comm.)

Population Trend


Major Threats

Agriculture and logging are probably impacting its habitat when these are carried out too intensively.

Conservation Actions

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.

Taxonomic Notes

This species might be a synonym of Kurixalus verrucosus (Ohler et al. 2000).
