This species is known from the Serra do Cipó, near Jaboticatubas, and from Serra do Caraça, both in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil, above 800m asl. It might occur more widely, but this requires confirmation.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs on vegetation near streams in gallery forest, and presumably breeds in streams. It does not adapt well to anthropogenic disturbance.
It is a common species.
Mining, fires, and infrastructure development for human settlement are major threats to the species' habitat. The disturbance of the habitat by tourists is also a problem.
Its range includes Parque Nacional da Serra do Cipó, Área de Preservação Ambiental Sul and Reserva Particular do
Patrimônio Natural Santuário do Caraça.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the genus Bokermannohyla (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
