This species is known only from the vicinity of the type locality (Juréia, Iguape) in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, where it occurs from sea level up to about 500m asl. The region around the type locality has not been sampled so it might be more widespread than is currently known.
Habitat and Ecology
It occurs on vegetation near waterbodies in primary and secondary forest, and breeds in temporary pools.
It is common.
The only known populations are within a protected area, where its habitat is likely to be relatively secure. Populations that are presumed to occur outside this area are likely to be threatened by habitat loss.
The type locality is within the Estação Ecológica da Juréia-Itatins protected area.
