None noted. 


Known only from the type locality (12 kilometers southeast of Ribeiro Gonçalves, Municipality of Ribeiro Gonçalves) in the western part of Piauí, bordering on Maranhão, northeastern Brazil. 


Confused with Pseudopaludicola falcipes prior to its naming according to the original publication. Carvalho, Teixeira, Borges-Martins, and Giaretta, 2015, North-west. J. Zool., 11: 262–273, suggested that on the basis of morphology and acoustic characteristics that this species is not diagnosable from Pseudopaludicola canga but did not make the taxonomic change.
