|Range Description:||This species is known only from two localities in the state of Bahia in eastern Brazil: Fazenda Luzitania on the Rio Almada near Ilheus; and Santa Teresinha. It presumably occurs more widely, including in intervening areas between the two known localities. It is found up to 800m asl.|

|Population:||There is very little information on the population status of this species, which is known from only four specimens.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||At Fazenda Luzitania, a single specimen was collected in a cacao farm under cacao trees, bananas and some larger, emergent shade trees, on the ground in the leaf-litter near a small creek. At Santa Teresinha specimens were collected in terrestrial bromeliads in forest. This species is presumed to breed by direct development.|
|Major Threat(s):||The major threats to it are probably related to habitat loss due to agricultural development, creation of wood plantations, collection of bromeliads and logging.|
|Conservation Actions:||This species occurs in the Reserva Particular do Partimônio Natural Serra do Jequitibá.|
