Noblella bilineata
family: Strabomantidae
subfamily: Holoadeninae
Taxonomic Notes: The taxon was long considered to be a member of Ischnocnema but new results show it is in the Holoadininae and close to Barycholos and Noblella, bit distinct from both. Rather than list it as a species of uncertain taxonomy, AmphibiaWeb tentatively places it in Noblella.

From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from the southern and central parts of the State of Bahia, eastern Brazil, from Guaratinga north to Santa Teresinha. It occurs up to 800m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in lowland moist forests and in cocoa plantations. It is adaptable to more open areas, providing that trees are present. It has been found in the leaf-litter in cocoa plantations and in bromeliads in forest. It presumably breeds by direct development, but it is not known where it lays its eggs.


It is a common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

The major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to agriculture, livestock grazing, logging, industry and human settlement.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in several protected areas.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
