This species is currently known only from Teresópolis, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, and Boraceia, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, from 800-1,500m asl, although its distribution is not well known. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between the two known sites.

Habitat and Ecology

Population

Its population status is unknown.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

Its habitat is being degraded in Boraceia, where harvesting of palmito palm trees is opening up the forest canopy.

Conservation Actions

The range of this species is wholly within protected areas, although it is clear that conservation and maintenance of its habitat is required even in these areas.
