Burtt's Monkey Grasshopper is only known from a single locality (Kingolwera, Morogoro, Tanzania), where it has been collected in March and April 1954. The name of this locality has been mis-spelled in the original description (Descamps 1964). No further specimens have been recorded since 1954. Due to its small geographic range with only a single known location and the ongoing decline of rainforest habitats in the region, the species is assessed as Critically Endangered (possibly extinct).
