From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from two localities in south-eastern Brazil at around 650m asl in the state of Espírito Santo: Santa Teresa and Castelo. It presumably occurs between these two localities, and probably more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

It is confined to forest, where it is arboreal, living in epiphytic bromeliads. Breeding is by larval development in bromeliads.


It is a common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The major threat is habitat loss, especially due to the collection of bromeliads, and also due to agricultural development, wood plantations, livestock grazing, logging, human settlement and tourism, though some of its habitat is quite well protected.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in the Reserva Biológica Augusto Ruschi and Parque Estadual do Forno Grande.

Red List Status

Near Threatened (NT)


Listed as Near Threatened because, although it is relatively abundant within its small range, its Extent of Occurrence is less than 5,000 km2, and the extent and quality of its habitat are probably declining, thus making the species close to qualifying for Vulnerable.
