The eggs are laid in a foam nest built on the water surface, and are anchored to the margins of ponds, or alternatively, on the wet leaf-litter close to the ponds.|
|Major Threat(s):||The major threats to this species are not known, but it might be affected by localized forest loss.|
|Conservation Actions:||It has been collected in the Parque Estadual da Serra do Mar. There is a need for further survey work to determine, and monitor, the population status of this species.|
