EDGE Analysis

During the breeding season between July and March, a nest is constructed in the shallow running water that occurs between pools in relatively wide, flat sections of mountain streams. It is associated with montane rainforest and is found in many protected areas across Queensland and New South Wales, although it is still declining across its range. Threats to this species may include habitat degradation by feral animals, domestic stock and weeds, as well as upstream vegetation clearance, timber harvesting and urban development affecting flow regimes and water quality. The virulent fungal disease chytridiomycosis (responsible more many amphibian declines globally) been identified as the cause of illness and death of this species in some areas.
