The species is only known from some of the streams in the River Provadiskaya where it is locally abundant in the upper reaches but extirpated from the lower reaches. The species extent of occurrence is estimated to be less than 5,000 km² and its population has sharply declined due to pollution from industrial and domestic sources. This decline is expected to continue with ongoing economic development. It is estimated that the species is found in less than 10 locations based on the major threat of pollution.
