Listed as Vulnerable because its extent of occurrence (EOO) is 16,414 km2, it occurs in fewer than ten threat-defined locations, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its forest habitat in northeastern Madagascar.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species is known from Masoala, Betaolana to Marojejy between 400-800m asl in northeastern Madagascar. Recent surveys have also recorded it in Matsaborimaiky, between 1,400-1,750 m asl (Rabearivony et al. 2010). It occurs in fewer than 10 threat-defined locations, and its extent of occurrence (EOO) is 16,414 km2.|

|Population:||It is only known from a few specimens, so little information is available about its population size. Due to ongoing declines in the extent and quality of habitat, the population is suspected to be decreasing.|
|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species lives in pristine rainforest where it is often found close to, but sometimes at some distance from, small streams. It is not found in altered habitats. It is not clear whether the species breeds by larval or direct development.|
|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.|
Its forest habitat is receding due to subsistence agriculture (including livestock grazing), timber extraction, charcoal manufacture, and expanding human settlements.
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 Marojejy National Park and Masoala National Park.
