Following the preliminary revision by Torati and Mantelatto (2012), the species is only known with certainty from three Brazilian states, as well as the Caribbean side of Panama and Costa Rica, and Trinidad. The species is likely to be more widespread. The species has also been stated to be introduced into Florida but the taxonomic status of this part of the species range needs revision. In view of this wide distribution, and in the absence of any, known major threats the species is considered to be of Least Concern.
