This species is known only from central Brazil, in the State of Goiás. It is likely to occur somewhat more widely. It has been found at around 1,200m asl, though its elevational range is presumably broader than this.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in open habitats in Cerrado savannah. There is no information on whether or not it adapts well to anthropogenic disturbance. It breeds in streams.
It is a common species.
It populations are believed to be impacted by expanding agriculture, overgrazing by domestic livestock, wood extraction, and fire.
It occurs in the Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
