From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species occurs in the coastal regions of eastern and southern Brazil, from the State of Bahia, south to the State of Santa Catarina. It ranges up to 1,100m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in both forest and in more open areas, such as "restinga" shrubland, but not in farmland. It is commonly, but not always, associated with bromeliads. It is often found in forest on vegetation near temporary and permanent ponds where it breeds.


It is a very common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

In view of its adaptability, it is probably not seriously threatened, though agriculture, clear-cutting, removal of bromeliads, and human settlements might impact some populations.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in several protected areas.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a broad range of habitats, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
