There is insufficient population data available for this species.
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species is located in small streams and roadside ditches with turbid water. It is presumed to be a secondary burrower and burrows to depth of 0.3 - 0.5 m (Fetzner 2008).|
|Major Threat(s):||It is unknown wheather this species is being impacted by any major threats. However, it is likely to be undergoing localized declines in areas of urbanization, alteration to the hydrological regime and water pollution (R. Thoma, T. Jones, J. Cordeiro, pers. comm. 2009). In addition, paving of roadside ditches may reduce available habitat of this species.|
This species has been given a Global Heritage Status Rank of G3 by NatureServe (Taylor et al. 2007, NatureServe 2009) and Threatened by the American Fisheries Society (Taylor et al. 2007).
Further research on this species is required to determine its abundance, life histories and major threats.
