This species is known from Mangaratiba in Rio de Janeiro State, to Picinguaba, in São Paulo State, Brazil. It is known up to 800m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
This species is known from primary forest but it might also occur in secondary forest. It breeds in permanent streams, and also in artificial ponds, but is otherwise not known from human habitats.
It is a very common species.
Clear-cutting of forests is a major threat to the species, as it is not known to occur outside forest.
The range of the species includes a few protected areas. More research into the Extent of Occurrence and ecological requirements is needed, as well as an assessment of what are the major threats to the species. Further research is required to resolve taxonomic confusion within the genus Scinax.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern because, although its Extent of Occurrence is much less than 5,000 km2, it is common and occurs in a habitat that is not under significant threat.
