A very poorly known species, only known from a single location in the Philippines where deforestation may have severely depleted the population
Philippines, Palawan (Pagdanan Range). Not known from any other than the type location, which is called Ibangley Brookside Hill in the Pagdanan Range at only 40m altitude. The extent of occurrence is uncertain but is inferred to be less than 100 km² as is the area of occupancy. Presumably only a small population exists.
Habitat and Ecology
Closed tropical evergreen rain forest dominated by angiosperms. This species is possibly utilized for timber, but no specific details are known.
Critically Endangered B1ab(iii)
Known only from the type location with an extent of occurrence inferred to be less than 100km². A map in the Philippines Red Data Book showing the extent of natural forest cover on this island at present demonstrates an extreme rate of deforestation, much of which has occurred in recent decades.
General deforestation is likely to be the main threat.
This species is not known to occur within a protected area.
