Eggs are laid on leaves overhanging the water and when hatched the larvae drop into the water below where they develop further. The species requires gallery forest cover over the streams to allow it to reproduce.
Systems: Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Water pollution from agriculture is a major threat. Deforestation is only a localized threat at present, although desiccation and loss of overhanging leaves for breeding are potential problems in the future.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: The range of the species is not within any protected areas.
