|Scientific Name:||Guibemantis pulcher|
|Species Authority:||(Boulenger, 1882)|
Mantidactylus pulcher (Boulenger, 1882)
Lehtinen and Ramanamanjato (2006) recorded Guibemantis cf. pulcher from Sainte Luce and Mandena; the identity of these animals requires further study and they are not included as part of this assessment.
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor/s:||Ronald Nussbaum, Christopher Raxworthy|
|Reviewer/s:||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Range Description:||This species is widely distributed in eastern Madagascar from Marojejy south to Andohahela. It has been recorded from sea level up to 1,400m asl.|

|Population:||It is a locally common species.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It is an arboreal species living in pristine and disturbed rainforest and swamp forest, but not in open areas. It is usually observed in the leaf axils of screw pines (Pandanus spp.). It breeds in the leaf axils of Pandanus by larval development.|
|Major Threat(s):||Its forest habitat is receding due to subsistence agriculture, timber extraction, charcoal manufacture, and 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.|
|Conservation Actions:||It occurs in many protected areas.|
