Trends and Threats
IUCN Red List's 2004 assessment of this species is Least Concern; however, Bornschein et al (2019) analysed the Brachycephalus species using the IUCN Red List criteria with newer information and concluded this species should be listed as Vulnerable, based on its limited known range, ongoing habitat loss and degrading quality (criteria B1ab(i,iii).

Possible reasons for amphibian decline

General habitat alteration and loss
Habitat modification from deforestation, or logging related activities
