Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:It is restricted to closed-canopy hilly rainforest and does not occur in disturbed habitats. Adults and juveniles occupy the forest floor and shrub strata. Adults breed along the banks of clear, rocky streams and the larvae develop in the riffles of such streams.
Systems:Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The major threat is logging, which also results in increased siltation of forest streams and thereby poses a threat to larval habitat.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: It is present in Lanjak Entimau Wildlife Sanctuary in central Sarawak. However, there is a need for more effective preservation and protection of lowland rainforest in western Kalimantan. Further survey work is needed to determine the current population status of the species.
