From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known from Serra dos Org√£os and the coastal mountains of Rio de Janeiro city, in Rio de Janeiro State, southeastern Brazil. It occurs from sea level up to 800m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

This species occurs on the forest leaf-litter in primary and secondary forest. There is no information known about its breeding habits, though it is believed to be by direct development. It has also been recorded from domestic gardens near the forest, that also have trees.

Population

It is a common species.

Population Trend

decreasing

Major Threats

Habitat loss due to clear-cutting of the forest, and illegal infrastructure development for human settlement even within protected areas are major threats to the species.

Conservation Actions

The range of the species includes several protected areas. More research into the species' Extent of Occurrence and ecological requirements is needed.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is less than 20,000 km2, it is common with a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
