It is a common species.
Clear-cutting of the forest, and infrastructure development, particularly for tourism is a major threat.
The range of the species includes two protected areas. More research into the species' Extent of Occurrence and ecological requirements is needed. Further research is required to resolve taxonomic confusion within the genus Scinax.
