|Major Threat(s):||The Serra de Maranguape is being very heavily deforested, due to logging, agriculture, and human settlement.|
|Conservation Actions:||It is not found in any protected areas, and the formal protection of remaining forest and forest fragments in the Serra de Maranguape is urgently needed.|
