From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known from two localities in the state of Bahia in eastern Brazil; near Fazenda Unacau in São José da Vitória Municipality; and from a locality in Uruçuca Municipality (Dixo and Verdade 2004). It occurs up to 180m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

The type specimen was collected among rocks about 100m from a stream. The large distance between the collection site and the stream suggests that it is not stream-dependent, and the species' morphology is similar to that of the other forest floor species with terrestrial larvae, such as Cycloramphus stejnegeri.

Population

There is no information and there have been very few records.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

The major threats to this species are probably related to habitat loss due to agricultural development, creation of wood plantations, logging, fire and human settlement.

Conservation Actions

Some other Cycloramphus species have declined for unexplained reasons, and so it is an urgent priority to rediscover populations of this species.
