This species is known from 655-850 m altitude and higher in the northern sector of the Serra da Mantiqueira range in Espirito Santo and Minas Gerais States, south-east Brazil. It is ecologically separated from other members of the Hyla circumdata group by surrounding low-lying rift valleys.
Habitat and Ecology
This species is known from the Atlantic Forest, with individuals most often found near streams, at least sometimes perching at up to 1.8 m above the ground. The species is presumed to be a larval developer.
There is no information available on the abundance of this species.
The Atlantic Forest has been subject to substantial deforestation and fragmentation due to historical logging and ongoing large-scale clearance for cattle pasture, and crops such as sugar cane, coffee, and exotic trees, as well as for smallholder agriculture. The habitat within the range of this species is likely not severely fragmented yet.
This species is known from Parque Municipal Pico do Goiapaba-Açu in Espíritu Santo, and Reserva Particular do Patrimônio Natural Mata do Sossego and Parque Estadual da Serra do Brigadeiro, Minas Gerais. It is likely to also occur in a number of other protected areas.
This species was separated from Bokermannohyla circumdata (Napoli 2005). It was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the genus Bokermannohyla (Faivovich et al. 2005).
