This species is known from several localities in the northern part of the State of Alagoas and in the State of Pernambuco, northeastern Brazil. It occurs from sea level up to 700m asl.
Habitat and Ecology
It lives in lowland forest, including secondary forest, and breeds in streams. It does not occur in open or degraded areas.
It is common within its restricted range.
The major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to agriculture, livestock grazing, clear-cutting and human settlement.
It occurs in four protected areas: Reserva Particular do Patrimonio Usina Frei Caneca; Parque Ecologio Vasconales Soburiho; Reserva Ecologia de Dois Irmaos, and Estação Ecológica de Murici.
