This species is known only from Alto Macae, Nova Friburgo, at 1,200m asl in the state of Rio de Janeiro, in south-eastern Brazil. Records from Santa Teresa in the state of Espirito Santo do not refer to this species (Peixoto pers. comm.).
Habitat and Ecology
If it is like other members of its genus, it presumably lives in bromeliads in forests, and perhaps also on rock outcrops, but not in more degraded habitats. It presumably breeds by larval development in bromeliads.
It has not been recorded since the type series was collected in 1909.
There is no direct information on threats to this species, but it is likely to be impacted by the collection of bromeliads, and by human settlement.
It is not known if it occurs in any protected areas.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
