This species can be found in the Serra do Mar in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil.
Habitat and Ecology
This species occurs on the forest floor of the rainforest. Reproduction is presumably by larval development.
Its population status is unknown. It was last collected in 1950 and is known from only about six specimens.
The major threats are unknown.
Given the declines of high-altitude stream-breeding species in other parts of the wet tropics, surveys are urgently needed to relocate this species and to assess its status, especially in view of the lack of recent records. Some other Cycloramphus species have declined for unexplained reasons, and so it is an urgent priority to rediscover populations of this species.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
