This extremely rare species of Western Ghats is only found in Karnataka's Manikyadhara falls of Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary in Chikmagalur district (at a ranging altitude 1,000m - 1,515m asl). It inhabits underneath small boulders in montane shola forests with freshwater systems and under canopies with less natural light.

This species is listed as Critically Endangered in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (https://www.iucnredlist.org/).

According to the IUCN Red List assessment, the current population size and trend of this species is unknown. As it is reported from a single threat-defined location, its Extent of Occurrence is less than 30 sq km. The threats to its persistence come from habitat disturbances due to large-scale non-timber cultivation in the Chikmagalur district, and other human encroachments like tourism and illegal plant collection.
