Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2010
Date Assessed: 2008-11-13
Assessor(s): Diva Borges-Najosa, Gabriel Skuk
Reviewer(s): Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson, Neil Cox and Bruce Young)
Justification:
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a degree of habitat modification, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
Previously published Red List assessments:
  • 2004 – Least Concern (LC)

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:This species from eastern Brazil ranges from the State of Pernambuco, south to the State Santa Catarina, with isolated populations at Maranguape and Ibiapaba in Ceará. It occurs up to 1,200m asl.

Population [top]

Population:It is a very common species.
Current Population Trend:Stable
Additional data:
Population severely fragmented:No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:It is found in primary and secondary forest, on the forest edge, and in degraded areas near forest. It lives in the forest leaf-litter. It spawns in temporary slow-flowing water in forest or on the forest edge.
Systems:Terrestrial; Freshwater

Use and Trade [top]

Use and Trade: It is apparently subject to illegal trade, both nationally and internationally.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to agriculture, wood plantations, livestock grazing, clear-cutting, human settlement and tourism. It is also harvested for the international pet trade, though this is unlike to have a significant impact on the populations.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: It occurs in many protected areas.
