Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family
ANIMALIA CHORDATA AMPHIBIA ANURA MICROHYLIDAE

Scientific Name: Oreophryne monticola
Species Authority: (Boulenger, 1897)

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Endangered B1ab(iii) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Assessor(s): Djoko Iskandar, Mumpuni
Reviewer(s): Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)
Justification:
Listed as Endangered because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 5,000 km2, all individuals are in fewer than five locations, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat on Bali and Lombok.

Population [top]

Population: There is no recent information on this species, and it has not been recorded since the 1930s.
Population Trend: Decreasing

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology: It is known only from highland forest. It presumably lays eggs on the ground and breeds by direct development without a larval stage.
Systems: Terrestrial

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The habitat of this species is being severely impacted by very large-scale international tourism.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: The mountain forests on Bali are protected, but for recreational purposes, not for biodiversity conservation. On Lombok the species presumably occurs in Gunung Rinjani Nature Reserve. There is clearly an urgent need for survey work to establish the current population status of this species on the two islands, and its presence within existing reserves.
