Gunung Murud is found in Pulong Tau National Park, which has only been recently gazetted and there is no current infrastructure or field staff in place, so it is not well protected at present (I. Das pers. comm. March 2018).
Enforcement of the park's boundaries is needed to address logging issues within the park (Malaysia Red List Assessment Workshop March 2018).
Further research is needed into the life history and ecology of this species.
Location InformationThis species is currently only known from its type locality: Gunung Murud, Sarawak, East Malaysia (northwestern Borneo), at 2,120 m asl (Das 2008). The subpopulation in the same locality which was previously thought to belong to Pelophryne misera has now been assigned to this species (I. Das pers. comm. March 2018). It is a montane species that is thought to be endemic to Gunung Murud, likely from an area smaller than 5 km2 (I. Das pers. comm. March 2018). It occurs in one threat-defined location and its estimated extent of occurrence (EOO) is 10 km2.
