Neonoemacheilus morehensis is known only from its original description location in Manipur, India. It can be expected to be present in Myanmar in the Chindwin basin. More research is necessary to find out its range of distribution, life history, population or threats. It is therefore assessed as Data Deficient.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The species is prone to threats such as habitat destruction caused by deforestation, siltation, and other human interference.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: The species is not known from any protected areas, and clearly there is a need for improved habitat protection at sites where this species is known to occur. Further survey work is needed to determine whether or not this species is experiencing a decline, or is undergoing natural population fluctuations.
