Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:This species from south-eastern Brazil is known from the Serra das Cabras, Campinas, in the state of São Paulo, east to Parque Nacional do Itatiaia, Itatiaia Municipality, Itamonte, in the state of Minas Gerais. It might be more widely distributed, and is here assumed to occur beween the two known localities. Its altitudinal range is 800-1,700m asl.

Population [top]

Population:It is very abundant in Itatiaia, but it is decreasing in the Serra das Cabras for unknown reasons.
Current Population Trend:Decreasing
Additional data:
Population severely fragmented:No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:This is a species of primary and secondary forest, associated with fast-flowing streams in which it breeds. The males are diurnal and frequent shaded places on rocks, in rock crevices, and under rocks and boulders.
Systems:Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The major threats to this species are probably related to habitat loss due to logging, tourism and fire.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: There is an urgent need to establish a monitoring programme to determine whether or not it is in decline in areas of suitable habitat. The reported decline in apparently suitable habitat in the Serra das Cabras is reminiscent of declines and disappearances of other high-altitude, stream-breeding frogs in the wet tropics, and the possibility of chytridiomycosis should be investigated. This species occurs in Parque Nacional do Itatiaia.
