Known from central-eastern Bahia to Alagoas, Brazil.


In the Hyla albosignata group according to the original publication. Call described by Abrunhosa, Pimenta, Cruz, and Haddad, 2005, Arq. Mus. Nac., Rio de Janeiro, 63: 275–282. In the Aplastodiscus albosignatus group of Faivovich, Haddad, Garcia, Frost, Campbell, and Wheeler, 2005, Bull. Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 294: 82. Lima, Skuk, and Silva, 2006, Herpetol. Rev., 37: 485, provided the record for Alagoas and detailed records from Bahia. Berneck, Haddad, Lyra, Cruz, and Faivovich, 2016, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 97: 213–223, placed this species (and its unnamed sister species) as the sister taxon of remaining Aplastodiscus, rendering the former Aplastodiscus albosignatus group paraphyletic. Juncá, 2006, Biota Neotrop., 6: 1–17, briefly summarized the presence of this species in the Serra da Jibóia region, Bahia, Brazil, and its habitat. Dubeux, Silva, Nascimento, Gonçalves, and Mott, 2019, Rev. Nordestina Zool., 12: 18–52, summarized the literature on larval morphology. See Dubeux, Nascimento, Lima, Magalhães, Silva, Gonçalves, Almeida, Correia, Garda, Mesquita, Rossa-Feres, and Mott, 2020, Biota Neotrop., 20 (2: e20180718): 1–24, for characterization and identification of larvae north of the Rio São Francisco in the Atlantic Forest of northeastern Brazil.
