|Population:||It is a common species.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This diurnal species occurs on stones or hidden under rocks in forest stream margins in primary and good secondary forest. It breeds in streams.|
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:||Its range includes Parque Estadual de Campos do Jordão, and a few other small parks.|
