This species can be found in the Serra do Mar in the states of Paraná and Santa Catarina, Brazil, from 800-1,000m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
This is a terrestrial species that occurs in leaf-litter in rainforest. It probably lays eggs on the ground where larvae hatch and develop, away from water.
Its population status is unknown. It was last collected in 2003.
Habitat loss due to deforestation arising from agricultural development and logging is a major threat.
This species occurs in municipal parks that do not offer much protection. The creation of new protected areas is therefore needed.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
