It can be found on low vegetation near waterbodies; the small clutch of eggs is attached to aquatic plants.
It is very abundant and stable.
There are no major threats. It adapts well to agricultural habitats.
It can be found 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). It was resurrected from the synonymy of Dendropsophus nanus by Basso, Perí and diTada (1985).
