P. kinangopensis is a small anuran endemic to the East African montane moorlands and East African montane forests ecoregions, strictly limited to occurrence in Kenya. Breeding occurs in rain-filled temporary pools in montane grassland and moorland. Although this taxon is known to occur in two separate Kenyan National Parks, there are threats to the Kinangop River Frog from expanding human population pressures, agricultural land conversion, overgrazing and deforestation by native peoples.
