|Taxonomic Notes:||The subpopulations in central and northern Madagascar are suspected to belong to an undescribed species or part of the G. bicalcaratus complex (F. Glaw pers. comm. February 2016).|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|

Listed as Least Concern is view of its wide distribution and presumed large population.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species was stated in the original description to be widely distributed in eastern and central Madagascar, and also to occur in Andohahela in southeastern Madagascar. However, taxonomic confusion between this species and Guibemantis bicalcaratus makes its distribution very unclear; specifically the northernmost records are thought to be either part of the G. bicalcaratus complex or undescribed species. Its altitudinal range is 300-1,500 m asl.|

|Population:||It is known from only a few specimens and its population size is unknown. However, due to ongoing decline in the quality and extent of habitat its population is thought to be decreasing.|
|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This is an arboreal inhabitant of pristine rainforest, being particularly associated with Pandanus species. The eggs are laid in leaf axils (often of Pandanus), and this is where the larvae also develop.|
|Continuing decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat:||Yes|
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Use and Trade:||
There are no records of this species being utilized.
|Major Threat(s):||Its forest habitat is receding due to subsistence agriculture, timber extraction, charcoal manufacture, invasive spread of eucalyptus, livestock grazing and expanding human settlements. It is probably also affected by the collection of Pandanus, which is used for the roofs of huts.|
This species occurs in Andohahela National Park, Marojejy National Park, and probably other protected areas.
