Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)
Listed as Endangered because its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 5,000 km2, it is known from fewer than five locations, and the quality and extent of its forest habitat on the Kenyan coast is declining.
Although somewhat adaptable, there is a limit to the amount of opening up of its habitat that it can tolerate, and so it is probably impacted by agricultural expansion and increasing human settlements.
