From the IUCN Red List Species Account:


Range Description

This species is known only from three localities in the Serra do Mar in the state of São Paulo, south-east Brazil, although it might be more widespread: Paranapiacaba, Boracéia and Salesópolis. Its altitudinal range is 500-800m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives on the ground near small temporary streams inside primary forest. The eggs are laid in small ponds at the edges of the temporary streams.


It is less common than Paratelmatobius cardosoi, but it can still be found.

Population Trend


Major Threats

Although it has so far been found only in protected areas, this species is almost certainly found in other places where the major threats to it are probably related to habitat loss and degradation due to clear-cutting and tourism.

Conservation Actions

It occurs in two protected areas.
