It builds clay nests, and the larvae develop in water. It adapts well to anthropogenic disturbance and does well in disturbed areas.
It is a common species.
There are no known threats to this adaptable species.
Its range includes 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 fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Hypsiboas (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
