This species’ geographic range is from the Coastal Plain from southeastern Virginia to southern Florida, west to southeastern Alabama, USA (Conant and Collins 1991).
Habitat and Ecology
Its habitat is grassy/sedgy areas near bogs or ponds in pine flat woods or along pools and streams in hardwood forests and cypress swamps. It can usually be found perched in grasses, sedges, or low shrubs. Eggs are laid and larvae develop in grassy, rain-filled depressions and semi-permanent ponds.
Many secure subpopulations exist throughout its range.
Overall this species is not considered to be threatened. Clear-cutting and urbanization probably impact local subpopulations.
No species-specific conservation actions are needed. It occurs in many protected areas.
