Pethia macrogramma is a recently described species (Kullander 2008). It is known only from five locations near Myitkyina, in Myanmar, where its total extent of occurrence is approximately 6,000 km². No further information is available on its population structure, threats to habitats and level of exploitation. More research is needed to find out the exact distribution, population, and threats. The species is therefore listed as Data Deficient.
