From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from within 25km of the type locality, Chapada dos Guimarães, in Mato Grosso State, Brazil, and from a single locality in Bolivia, although its distribution is still very poorly known. The records are from around 800m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs on vegetation in gallery forests in the Cerrado savannah, and breeds by direct development, although there is no information known about the egg deposition site. It probably does not adapt well to anthropogenic disturbance.

Population

It is a reasonably common species.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Agricultural development, involving both crops and livestock, as well as logging and fires, are major threats to this species’ habitat. Disturbance of the habitat by tourists is also a problem.

Conservation Actions

Its range includes Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Guimarães. Taxonomic revision is needed to determine whether or not Bolivian specimens represent a different species.
