Nguyen pers. comm. August 2011); in the latter it is sometimes found along streams (T. Chan-ard pers. comm. August 2011). It is active both by day and at night.
No species-specific conservation measures are in place, although it has been recorded from protected areas. Research is underway to clarify the taxonomy of this species complex.
