Range Description

This species from eastern Brazil is known only from the vicinity of its type locality at Maracas and Santa Ines in east-central Bahia State. Records from the state of Sergipe refer to the recently described Phyllodytes punctatus (Caramaschi and Peixoto 2004).

Habitat and Ecology

It apparently lives in terrestrial bromeliads in open areas, and breeds in the bromeliads by larval development.

Population

There is no information on the population status of this species, of which there have been no recent field observations, probably due to a lack of survey effort.

Population Trend

Unknown

Major Threats

There is no direct information on the threats to this species, but in view of its known range the major threats are probably related to habitat loss due to agricultural development, livestock grazing, fire and collection of bromeliads.

Conservation Actions

It is not known from any protected areas.
