|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Carlos Alberto Gonçalves da Cruz, Sergio Potsch de Carvalho-e-Silva|
|Reviewer(s):||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)|
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.
|Range Description:||This species from southeastern Brazil is known from four localities: Santa Teresa (the type locality) in the State of Espírito Santo; Teresopolis and Parati in the State of Rio de Janeiro; and Ubatuba in the State of Sao Paulo State. Its altitudinal range is 200-800m asl.|

|Population:||It is common where it occurs.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It lives in primary and secondary forest, but not in open areas. It is usually found on vegetation near permanent or temporary shallow streams, in which the tadpoles develop.|
The major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to agriculture, clear-cutting, human settlement and fire.
A similar species, Phrynomedusa cf. marginata has recently tested positive for Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis infection (Toledo et al., 2006b).
|Conservation Actions:||It has been found in several protected areas.|
