It is known from only a relatively small number of specimens and chorus recording. Results from recent surveys appear to suggest that the Howard Springs Toadlet is confined to sandsheet heathland within the Howard and Elizabeth River Catchments close to Darwin. There is l itt le information on the ecology of the species, other than it appears to be confined to sandsheet heath, areas of sandy soils with short vegetation that is inundated in the Wet season, or to adjacent Melaleuca woodland areas. Meet ing locat ion: Corner of Noel Road and Redclif fe Road, Lloyd Creek What to bring: head torch, camera, water Biting insects might be present and come prepared for wet conditions.
