Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2004
Date Assessed: 2004-04-30
Needs updating
Assessor(s): Peter Paul van Dijk, Djoko Iskandar, Robert Inger
Reviewer(s): Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:This species is known throughout the Thai-Malay Peninsula from about Chumphon southwards (Taylor, 1962, Berry, 1975), including Phuket (Frith, 1977), Tioman (Berry, 1975) and smaller islands.

Population [top]

Population:It is generally a common frog in suitable habitat. It is still abundant in forest with slightly polluted water. In such situations it can still be found where most other species have disappeared.
Current Population Trend:Decreasing
Additional data:
Population severely fragmented:No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:It is mainly associated with clear, swift-flowing boulder streams in evergreen primary rainforest in hilly areas, and is sometimes found in the forest at modest distances from streams. It is occasionally found in old secondary forest that has streams of the appropriate type. It breeds in streams.
Systems:Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): While individual populations might suffer from the impacts of deforestation and water pollution, these are not significant threats across the species' range.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Ensuring that the existing protected areas where the species occurs remain intact should secure its survival in mainland Southeast Asia.
