This species is known only from the coastal mountains of Santa Catarina state, Brazil, at 500-800m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives on the edge of rainforest, and occurs in understorey vegetation. It reproduces in small water-filled holes in the ground.
It is abundant and the population is apparently stable.
It is threatened by cattle that trample vegetation and cause water pollution.
It occurs in Serra do Tabeleiro State Park and several private reserves.
Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 20,000 km2, it is common and adaptable with a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
This species was removed from the synonymy of Aplastodiscus perviridis by Garcia, Caramaschi and Kwet (2001).
