Description

This species can be found in ponds in montane forest. It breeds all year long in Chevron; however, it seems that the highest number of breeding events occur during high rainfall (M. Kusrini pers. comm. August 2009). Contrary to the characteristic reproduction mode of this genus, this species has a free-living tadpole stage, and females attend to their eggs until they hatch (M. Kusrini pers. comm. August 2009). Mean clutch size is 52 eggs (n = 12; range: 37–66 eggs, SD= 8.25; M. Kusrini pers. comm. August 2009).
