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.
It is not thought to be a common species, and only a few specimens have been recorded.
There is no direct information on threats to this species.
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)
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.
