This species is known only from the type locality at 1,200m asl in the Poços de Caldas region of Minas Gerais State, eastern Brazil.
Habitat and Ecology
It is known from montane Atlantic forest. It is presumed to be a larval developer, and to use streams for breeding.
No information is currently available regarding its population status.
Its habitat in the Atlantic forest in which it occurs is threatened by substantial deforestation and fragmentation due to historical logging and ongoing large-scale clearance for cattle pasture, and crops such as sugar cane, coffee, and exotic trees, as well as for smallholder agriculture.
This species is not known from any protected areas.
This species was previously within the genus Hyla but has recently been moved to the resurrected genus Hypsiboas (Faivovich et al. 2005).
