This species is known from the coastal forests of Santa Catarina, Brazil, at elevations of 300-1,000m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs on the forest leaf-litter near streams. It reproduces in backwaters of small streams.
It is rare, but stable in suitable habitat.
Habitat loss due to deforestation is a major threat to this species.
It occurs in Serra do Tabuleiro State Park. The creation of new protected areas and research actions are needed.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
