This species is known from southern Mato Grosso and northern Mato Grosso do Sul, in Brazil, to the department of Beni, in eastern Bolivia and the department of La Paz, in western Bolivia. It probably occurs more widely than current records suggest, especially in areas between known sites. It occurs up to 700m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs in the Pantanal, Cerrado, and flooded savannahs. It breeds on low vegetation near waterbodies such as rivers or in marshy grounds. It is not well adapted to anthropogenic disturbance.
It is a common species.
Habitat destruction and degradation caused primarily by agriculture is a major threat.
Taxonomic research is needed to resolve the status of this species complex. Its range includes several protected areas.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005). This form is a complex of more than one species (for example, within Bolivia at least two different species are distinguishable).
