From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known from two localities: Monte Belo, and Po├žos de Caldas, both in Minas Gerais State, in south-eastern Brazil, where it has been recorded at around 1,000m asl. Sampling of this area is poor, so it might have a larger distribution than is currently known.

Habitat and Ecology

It occurs in primary and secondary gallery forests on vegetation along rivers, but has not been recorded from anthropogenic habitats. Larvae were found in ponds on the streams margins.


It is a common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Mining is the main threat to this species, in particular due to the pollution of its habitat that this activity causes.

Conservation Actions

It is not known to occur within any protected areas, and conservation and maintenance of its habitat is needed. More research into its extent of occurrence, ecological requirements and population status is also needed, in particular to determine if it occurs outside the two known localities.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainties as to its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
