The only information we were able to acquire for this species was the names of rivers that were known to support the species. These presumably reflect historic distribution. To our knowledge, no recent field surveys have been conducted to determine current status. The current difficulty making contact with specialists in North Korea is a major impediment. Without any solid information on the species, we can only assess the species as Data Deficient.
