This species is known from Peruibe, Ubatuba and Ilha Bela in coastal São Paulo State, and also from Paraná State, Brazil. It occurs up to about 50m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
This species occurs in primary and secondary forest edge, and breeds in temporary pools. It has not been recorded from disturbed habitats.
It is a common species.
Clear-cutting of the forest, and infrastructure development, particularly for tourism is a major threat.
The range of the species includes two protected areas. More research into the species' Extent of Occurrence and ecological requirements is needed. Further research is required to resolve taxonomic confusion within the genus Scinax.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 20,000 km2, it occurs in an area of extensive, suitable habitat which appears not to be under significant threat, it has a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
