Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
This species is known from the type locality (Chapada dos Guimarães, Mato Grosso), from two nearby localities (Barra do Bugres and Cáceres, Mato Grosso), from Aquidauana, Mato Grosso do Sul, and from Santa Rita do Araguaia, in Goias, Brazil. It was collected in the Upper Negro region of the Pantanal.
Individuals were found amidst leaf-litter in gallery forests in the Cerrado, which is also its breeding habitat. The eggs are laid on land and then the larvae are deposited in streams where they develop further. It probably does not adapt well to anthropogenic disturbance.
