From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is widespread in southern, southeastern and central Brazil as well as in eastern Bolivia, Paraguay, northern Argentina, and northern Uruguay. Its altitudinal range is from 0-2,000m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in open habitats such as pastures. During breeding time it can be found in standing waterbodies, such as ponds. The spawn are attached to aquatic vegetation and the tadpoles develop in the water. It is very common in urban areas, and inside houses.

Population

It is common even in deforested regions.

Population Trend

Stable

Major Threats

There are no threats.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in several protected areas. Taxonomic work is required to resolve this species complex.

Taxonomic Notes

This form is probably a complex of several species. Scinax trachythorax and S. megapodius are treated as separate species by some authors, but the most recent review of Hylidae considers them both to be a synonym of S. fuscovarius (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
