Larva
Other members of the genus Brachycephalus are direct developers (e.g., Alves et al 2009) and this species is presumed to be so as well.

Trends and Threats
The IUCN Red List 2008 assessment lists this species as Data Deficient; however, Bornschein et al (2019) analyzed the Brachycephalus species using the IUCN Red List criteria with newer locality information and concluded this species should be listed as Least Concern.
