Range Description

This species occurs in the coastal region of eastern Brazil from the State of Pernambuco, south to southern Espírito Santo State. Records from Paraíba require confirmation. It occurs up to 650m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It lives in bromeliads in lowland moist forest and in coastal "Restinga" shrubland (including in quite open "Restinga"). It breeds by larval development in bromeliads. The females lay a few eggs in each leaf axil and use more than one bromeliad during egg laying.

It is a common species.

Population Trend

Decreasing

Major Threats

The major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to agriculture, wood plantations, livestock grazing, fire, logging, human settlement and collection of bromeliads.

Conservation Actions

Taxonomic Notes

This form is probably a complex of several species (O. Peixoto pers. comm.). P. wuchereri was recently revalidated by Caramaschi, Peixoto, and Rodrigues (2004).
