|Taxonomic Notes:||This species was removed from the synonymy of Boophis tephraeomystax by Vences and Glaw (2002), where it had been placed by Guibé (1978) and Blommers-Schlösser (1979).|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||IUCN SSC Amphibian Specialist Group|
|Contributor(s):||Glaw, F., Scherz, D. & Vences, M.|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, tolerance of a broad range of habitats and presumed large population.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species is widely distributed in western and southern Madagascar, between 0-800m asl.|
|Range Map:||Click here to open the map viewer and explore range.|
|Population:||It is a very abundant species and the population is believed to be stable.|
|Current Population Trend:||Stable|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It lives in dry forest, open areas, rice fields, savannahs and wetland areas. It breeds in temporary ponds by larval development.|
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Use and Trade:||There are no records of this species being utilized.|
It is probably not affected by deforestation, is adaptable and unlikely to be threatened.
Species in this genus have tested positive for Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd), however currently there have been no negative effects observed within amphibian populations in Madagascar suggesting the Bd strain has a low virulence level (Bletz et al., 2015).
It occurs in several protected areas including Kirindy-Mitea, Isalo National Park, Tsitongambarika new protected area and Tsinghy de Bemaraha National Park.
Further research is essential to fully understand the distribution, origin, type and virulence of Bd lineages found in Madagascar (Bletz et al., 2015).
