Population [top]

Population:It was found to be common within its known range in the 1970s. However surveys in the past few years have not found any individuals. Surveys of the neighbouring suitable habitat are needed to establish whether or not it occurs there.
Current Population Trend:Decreasing
Additional data:
Population severely fragmented:No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:It is a forest species associated with streams. Reproduction is presumably by larval development in or near streams.
Systems:Terrestrial; Freshwater

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The known range of this species is within a protected area, so there are no known threats to its habitat, and the reason for the apparent decline is still unknown (but chytridiomycosis cannot be ruled out).

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Its range overlaps with Parque Nacional da Serra dos Órgãos. Some other Cycloramphus species have declined for unexplained reasons, and so it is an urgent priority to rediscover populations of this species.
