This species is known only from Parque Nacional da Chapada dos Veadeiros (in Alto Paraíso de Goiás Municipality), Parque Estadual dos Pirineus (in Pirenópolis Municipality), both in Goiás State, and from the Distrito Federal, Brazil. It is presumed to occur more widely. It has been recorded above 800m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
An inhabitant of the Cerrado savannah, it occurs on the ground near waterbodies, but does not adapt well to anthropogenic disturbance. The larvae are found in small temporary streams.
This is a common species.
The major threats to its habitat are agricultural development (for both the cultivation of crops and the rearing of livestock) and fires.
This species is known only from protected areas, though it presumably also occurs more widely.
Red List Status
Data Deficient (DD)
Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
