Range Description

This species is known from the type locality (Estação Ecológica da Juréia-Itatins, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil), and from one other locality about 10km away. It was recorded around sea level.

Habitat and Ecology

It has been found at night on a rock in the margins of the Verde River. The type locality is closed forest and open areas so it is not clear exactly which habitat it was found in.

Population

It is not thought to be a common species, and only a few specimens have been recorded.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

There is no direct information on threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

The entire range of this species is within the protected area of the Estação Ecológica da Juréia-Itatins, although maintenance and conservation of its habitat within the park is required.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)

Rationale

Listed as Data Deficient since it has only relatively recently been discovered, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
