This species is known only from the type locality, the Ataran River, in Tenasserim, Myanmar.
Habitat and Ecology
It presumably breeds by direct development.
There is no information regarding its population status, as it is known only from the two or four type specimens collected in, or before, 1870 (Bossuyt and Dubois 2001).
Threats to this species are unknown.
Examination of the type specimens is needed, to confirm this species' taxonomic validity. The type locality is close to the Western Forest Complex of Thailand, which is the largest surviving forest tract of Thailand, and which is comprised of a number of individual protected areas.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
This species was resurrected from the synonymy of Ixalus lateralis by Bossuyt and Dubois (2001).
