This newly described species from the state of Minas Gerais in southern Brazil is known only from the Serra do Curral and the Serra do Caraça, at around 850-1,000m asl. It probably occurs more widely.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in the transition zone between the Atlantic rainforest and the Cerrado savannah domains, where it is found on the margins of small streams in secondary gallery forest. It presumably breeds in the streams.
It is a common species within its small known range.
The major threats to this species are probably related to habitat loss due to the creation of wood plantations, logging, human settlement, tourism and fire.
It occurs in Parque Natural do Caraça, Reserva Particular do Patrimônio Natural Santuário do Caraça and Parque das Mangabeiras.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been discovered, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
