This species from eastern and southern Brazil occurs from the State of Bahia, south to the State of Rio Grande do Sul. It occurs up to 1,200m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in primary and secondary forest and forest edges, but not in more open areas. It is usually found in the leaf-litter on the forest floor, or on leaves in low vegetation inside the forest. It breeds by direct development.
It is a very common species.
The major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to agriculture, wood plantations, livestock grazing, clear cutting, fires and human settlement.
It occurs in many protected areas.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
This species is a complex of several species requiring systematic revision (S. Potsch de Carvalho-e-Silva pers. comm.).
