From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from Sergipe to São Paulo, in eastern Brazil, from sea level up to 1,000m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is mainly known from the Atlantic Forest edge. It occurs on vegetation near standing waterbodies. The egg clutch is deposited in leaf nests above the water, and when hatched the larvae fall in to the water below where they develop further. Reproductive activity in this species has been recorded in the months of December to February, potentially also occurring in November (Abrunhosa et al., 2006). It probably adapts well to moderate anthropogenic disturbance.


It is a common species.
