This species is known only from the vicinity of Campo Grande, in the municipality of Santo André, in the state of São Paulo, south-eastern Brazil, at 800m asl, although it is almost certainly more widespread.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in old secondary forest (there being no primary forest left at its only known locality), and forest edges, but not in more open areas. It is terrestrial, usually being found near standing water. The eggs are deposited in foam nests in shallow temporary ponds.
It is locally common in the small area from which it is known.
The major threat to this species is probably loss of habitat due to human settlement.
It is not currently known from any protected areas, but it probably occurs in Parque Estadual da Serra do Mar.
