|Reviewer/s:||Amori, G. (Small Nonvolant Mammal Red List Authority) & Schipper, J. (Global Mammal Assessment Team)|
Listed as Data Deficient in view of continuing problems with its taxonomy as well as absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements. This species is suspected to be threatened but the degree of threat is impossible to measure without more information on the species adaptability to habitat change and remaining area of occupancy.
|Range Description:||The species is endemic to southeast Brazil, where it is found in Rio Grande do Sul, São Paulo, Santa Catarina and Espírito Santo (Gardner, 2007).|
|Range Map:||Click here to open the map viewer and explore range.|
|Population:||Very little is known of populations of this species. A population reduction is suspected based on a severe drop reduction in extent of occurrence and/or quality of habitat by deforestation.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||Rain and subtropical forests of the Atlantic Coast.|
|Major Threat(s):||The loss of habitat is suspected to have caused a decline in various populations.|
|Conservation Actions:||This species is likely to occur in several protected areas, however, more surveys to establish range of occurrence and occupation, and ecology are needed in order to assess it.|
