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).
