|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species is so far known only from Katima Mulilo and the surrounding areas in the eastern Caprivi Strip of northeastern Namibia. It almost certainly occurs more widely, especially in southwestern Zambia, southeastern Angola, and northern Botswana (Herrmann and Branch 2013). Its EOO is 2,590 km2.|

|Habitat and Ecology:||This species is known from dry wooded savannah, where the males call from concealed positions under vegetation while sitting in shallow water. Breeding is believed to take place in shallow, muddy, temporary pools.|
|Use and Trade:||There is no information on the use or trade of this species.|
|Major Threat(s):||There is no direct information on threats to this species, but it is likely to occur widely in an area of limited human impact.|
