From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is mostly found in the central eastern coastal region of Bahia State, Brazil, although an Atlantic forest population is also present in Santa Terezinha Municipality in eastern Bahia. The altitudinal range of this species is approximately 20-720m asl, and it probably occurs at least a little more widely than is currently known.

Habitat and Ecology

This is a species generally associated with tall Restinga (coastal) forest that has also been collected in little-disturbed primary Atlantic forest. The Restinga vegetation is mostly large trees with a dense understorey on a sandy substrate. Individuals can be found calling from bromeliads. Breeding takes place in the slow backwaters of fast-flowing streams.


The population status of this species is not known.

Population Trend


Major Threats

It is probably threatened by disturbance of the Restinga forests due to agricultural development, logging and development of infrastructure for tourism and human settlement.

Conservation Actions

It is not known if it is present in any protected areas.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status, threats and ecological requirements.

Taxonomic Notes
