Range Description

Strabomantis aramunha is currently only known from the vicinity of Mucugê municipality, Serra do Sincorá, Espinhaço range, state of Bahia, Brazil (Cassimiro et al. 2008). Its known elevational range is between 942-1,207 m asl (Cassimiro et al. 2008). It may possibly occur more widely.

Habitat and Ecology

Individuals of this species have been found at night, motionless on exposed rock outcrops in the "campos rupestres" (high altitude rocky open grasslands) environment of Serra do Sincorá, Espinhaço mountain range (Cassimiro et al. 2008).


This species would appear to be rare, but this may be due to the fact that it is not easy to find it (J. Cassimiro pers comm. 2009). Further data are needed to determine its population status.
