This species from southern Brazil occurs in the coastal lowlands and the Serra do Mar, up to 1,200m, from Linhares in the State of Espírito Santo south to Florianopolis in the State of Santa Catarina.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives on low vegetation in secondary forest, often near swamps. It has also been found in open areas, such as grassland. It hangs its eggs in the vegetation above temporary still water, into which the larvae fall and develop.
It is a very common species.
Due to its adaptability it is not seriously threatened, but is probably impacted locally by agriculture and wood plantations.
It occurs in many protected areas.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich, et al., 2005).
