Abstract

Brachycephalus coloratus was known only from its type locality in the Serra da Baitaca of Paraná, Brazil. Its extent of occurrence was estimated at 0.37 km², and its conservation status was proposed as Vulnerable. Here, we provide a second record for B. coloratus at Pão de Ló, Paraná, at 1,230 m of altitude. We estimate its current area of occupancy at 1.17 km² and propose its conservation status as Endangered. The assessment of the Green Status suggests that it is Depleted; the prevention of deforestation and fires could lead to high conservation returns.
