Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)
Listed as Endangered because its Extent of Occurrence is less than 5,000 km2, its distribution is severely fragmented, and there is continuing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat.
This species is known from the north-eastern corner of New South Wales close to the border with Queensland. There are seven confirmed localities, and several other as yet unconfirmed localities, suggesting that it most likely has a larger range than is currently mapped here. It occurs at elevations above 600m asl.
