Listed as Near Threatened since although this species is still relatively widely distributed, it depends on areas of undisturbed forest habitat, and so its Extent of Occurrence is probably not much greater than 20,000 km2, and the extent and quality of its habitat is declining very rapidly due to widespread forest loss within its range, thus making the species close to qualifying for Vulnerable.
|Range Description:||This species is known from scattered localities across Borneo in Sabah (Malaysia), Sarawak (Malaysia), and Kalimantan (Indonesia), below 250m asl.|

|Population:||It is locally abundant at some sites.|
|Current Population Trend:||Unknown|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It has been seen only in primary lowland rainforest. The breeding habitat has yet to be recorded, though it presumably breeds in water by larval development.|
|Major Threat(s):||The major threat to the species' habitat is clear-cutting logging of the rainforest.|
|Conservation Actions:||It has been reported from three protected areas including Danum Conservation Area and Lanjak Entimau Wildlife Sanctuary. Expansion of effective preservation of lowland rainforest is essential for the conservation of this species.|
