Range Description

This species occurs in southeastern Brazil from the state of São Paulo, south to the state of Rio Grande do Sul. It ranges up to 1,000m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in primary and secondary forest, and in some plantations, but not in eucalyptus. It is not found in open habitats. Outside the breeding season it is found on trees. During the breeding season it is found in permanent waterbodies, such as ponds or lakes, or slowly flowing brooks. The egg clutch is laid between aquatic plants in these permanent waterbodies.


It is a very common species.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Although somewhat adaptable, it is impacted by the spread of intensive agriculture and eucalyptus plantations, as well as by clear-cutting.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in several protected areas.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
