This is a brook-dwelling frog species, often found on large stones in fast-flowing rocky torrents. Angels Madagascar frog is mainly active at night, but is sometimes found jumping on the stones in the afternoon. These frogs live in very noisy torrents and, considering their reduced eardrum, this may be a non-calling species. It is locally common, but has suffered local extinctions in parts of its range. Its forest habitat is receding due to subsistence agriculture, timber extraction, charcoal manufacture, the invasive spread of Eucalyptus, livestock grazing, expanding human settlements, and is also collected locally for human consumption. It occurs in the Andohahela and Midongy-du-Sud National Parks.
