Range Description

This species is known only from the coastal mountains of Santa Catarina state, Brazil, at 500-800m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

Population Trend

stable

Major Threats

It is threatened by cattle that trample vegetation and cause water pollution.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in Serra do Tabeleiro State Park and several private reserves.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

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.

Taxonomic Notes

This species was removed from the synonymy of Aplastodiscus perviridis by Garcia, Caramaschi and Kwet (2001).
