From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from the type locality (Belo Horizonte), from the Serra do Curral, Serra do Cara├ža and Ouro Preto in Minas Gerais State, Brazil. It might also occur in a few other localities, but the identity of specimens from these other areas is still to be confirmed. It has been recorded from around 700-800m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This species occurs on leaf-litter in gallery forests and in forest edges along creeks. The type locality is secondary forest. It presumably breeds by direct development, like others in the genus.


It is observed to be common during the breeding season.

Population Trend


Major Threats

This species is threatened by habitat degradation due to clear-cut logging, disturbance due to tourism, and infrastructure development for human settlement in the area.

Conservation Actions

The type locality is within a protected area, Parque das Mangabeiras, but it is not well managed. The other known localities are within small protected areas. Conservation and maintenance of its habitat are required, as is taxonomic research to confirm the identity of newly collected specimens.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainties as to its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
