From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from the southern coastal area of the state of Bahia, eastern Brazil: from Itabuna south to Prado. It occurs very close to the sea, up to 50m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in forest and forest edge, but not in more open habitats. It has been found in swamps on the forest edge, and in puddles inside, and on the edge, of forest.

It can be found perched on leaves of marginal vegetation of temporary ponds inside undisturbed or secondary forest patches (Pimenta et al., 2007).

It breeds in temporary puddles.


It is very abundant within its small range.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to clear-cutting, human settlement and tourism. It is inherently at risk because of its very restricted range.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in Reserva Particular do Patrimônio Natural Estação Veracruz, Ceplac (Itabuna), Reserva Biólogica de Una, and Parque Nacional Descobrimento.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
