Listed as Vulnerable because it is known from only a single location.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||This species is known only from Mount Isarog (1,200-1,800m asl), on south-eastern Luzon Island, in the Philippines. It might also occur on Mount Malinao, from 650-1,500m asl.|
|Range Map:||Click here to open the map viewer and explore range.|
|Population:||It is common in mid- to upper-montane forests on Mount Isarog, and its populations appear to be stable.|
|Current Population Trend:||Stable|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It inhabits arboreal microhabitats in mossy and montane rainforests, and deposits its eggs on leaves in shrub layer vegetation. It breeds by direct development.|
|Major Threat(s):||It inhabits high-elevation forests in what is presently a generally well-protected locality, and is relatively less threatened by habitat loss due to agriculture and human encroachment. Nonetheless, it remains susceptible to these threats particularly given its very small range.|
|Conservation Actions:||The most important conservation measure needed at present is the continued management of Mount Isarog National Park. There is also a need for continued monitoring of the population status of this species.|
