Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Tourism disturbance is a threat to it, as is infrastructure development for human settlement.

The species has recently tested positive for Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis infection with a variety of methods. Although infected tadpoles appear to co-exist with the disease, the presence of the fungus is of concern given the threats that assail the Brazilian Atlantic rainforest (Toledo et al., 2006a).

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Its range includes Parque Estadual de Campos do Jordão, and a few other small parks.
