This species from eastern Brazil is known from the region of Linhares in the State of Espírito Santo, north to Porto Seguro in the State of Bahia. It is a very low altitude species, occurring from sea level up to 30m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in bromeliads in forests, "Restinga" scrub, and open areas near the coast. It breeds by larval development in temporary ponds.
It is a common species.
The main threats are probably related to habitat loss due to agriculture, livestock grazing, logging, human settlement, tourism, and collection of bromeliads. However, this species is reasonably adaptable, and is not significantly threatened.
It occurs in at least three protected areas: Reserva Biólogica de Sooretama; Reserva Particular do Patrimônio Natural Estação Veracruz, and Reserva Florestal da C.V.R.D.
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.
