This species from eastern Brazil is known only from Areia Branca, in Sergipe State, and from the municipality of Quebrangulo in Alagoas State, from 160-360m asl. It almost certainly occurs more widely in north-eastern Brazil.
Habitat and Ecology
It is found in primary and secondary forest. There is no information on its breeding habits, although it presumably breeds in water.
There are only a few records of this species, and very little information is available concerning its population status.
The major threats to this species are probably related to habitat loss due to agricultural development, livestock grazing, wood extraction, fire, and human settlement.
It occurs in the Reserva Biológica de Pedra Talhada in Alagoas State.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Dendropsophus (Faivovich et al. 2005).
