From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species from southeastern Brazil occurs in the States of Minas Gerais, Paraná, Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina, and São Paulo. It ranges up to 1,700m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives on the leaf-litter inside primary and secondary forest and shrubland, and can also survive in gardens. The tadpoles live in still water puddles and temporary ponds (unlike some species of the Leptodactylus marmoratus group which have terrestrial larvae).

Population

It is a very common species.

Population Trend

stable

Major Threats

Since it is somewhat adaptable, it is probably not seriously threatened, but certain populations are probably impacted by agriculture, wood plantations, logging and human settlement.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in several protected areas.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence might be less than 20,000 km2, it is common and adaptable with a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Taxonomic Notes

This species is composed of several cryptic species (A. Kwet pers. comm.).
