The Seychelles palm frog was only described as a new species in 2002, and details of its breeding behaviour are currently unknown. The eggs are probably laid on the ground, or in leaf axils of specific palms, and hatch directly into froglets. The eggs are likely to be guarded until hatching occurs. This species is very active and agile, and responds to disturbance by leaping and climbing. It is the only species of native Seychelles frog to not be found on the largest and most populous island of Mahé, and there are no specific threats to this species on Silhouette, although there are risks associated with occurring in a very small range.
