This species occurs in Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, at elevations of 0-1,200m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
This species inhabits leaf-litter of damp woodland, frequently in secondary forests or transition zones from woodland to grassland. During breeding the frogs are found at small ponds or temporary waterbodies such as road puddles. The eggs are laid in foam nests attached to grass stems at the margins of ponds.
It is an abundant and stable species.
Habitat loss due to deforestation is a major threat.
It occurs in several protected areas. Research actions and creation of new protected areas is needed.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
