It is protected under Brazilian law, and occurs in several protected areas, notably Augusto Ruschi Biological Reserve and and Intervales State Park, with further populations in Monte Pascoal and Serra dos Órgãos National Parks and Rio Doce and Serra do Brigadeiro State Parks (F. Olmos and P. Martuscelli in litt. 1995, Simon et al. 1999). Conservation Actions Proposed
Effectively protect remaining areas of Atlantic forest where the species occurs. Continue to search for the species at new localities. Monitor known strongholds such as Augusto Ruschi Biological Reserve.
This species is dull brownish-grey overall. It is slightly paler and duller underneath. As its name suggests, it has a wash of cinnamon brown at the vent. It measures 28 cm (11 in) long.
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. Declines in range and population are likely contributed to continuing habitat loss and degradation, which has caused this species to be classified as vulnerable.
