Range Description

This species is known only from its type locality, Alhandra, which is close to sea level, in the state of ParaĆ­ba in north-eastern Brazil.

Habitat and Ecology

All the specimens were found inside bromeliads, in which this species is presumed to breed by larval development. Its broader habitat preferences are not known, although it is perhaps associated with coastal Restinga shrubland, or with forest.

Population

There is no information on the population status of this species, which is only known from a few specimens.

Decreasing

Major Threats
