Pethia nankyweensis is thought to have a restricted range. Although it is known only from four locations near Myitkyina in Myanmar, where its total extent of occurrence is approximately 6,000 km², more research needed to determine its real distribution, population structure, and threats are needed to make a proper assessment. It is therefore listed as Data Deficient.
