Scyllarides roggeveeni has been assessed as Data Deficient. Further research into the population status and harvest rates are needed before a more accurate assessment of conservation status can be made. It is important to note that if it is subsequently found to be an endemic to Easter Island then this species might then fit a threatened category.
|Range Description:||This species is only known to occur in Easter Island (Poupin 2003).|
The type locality for this species is Hanga Pico, in the southwest of Easter Island (Holthuis 1991).
Native:Chile (Easter Is.)
|FAO Marine Fishing Areas:|
Pacific – southeast

|Population:||There is very little known population information. All four records are known from captures in lobster traps.|
|Current Population Trend:||Unknown|
|Habitat and Ecology:||There is no habitat information for this species.|
|Use and Trade:||This species is not currently harvested commercially. Other species of this genus are harvested for food, so it is likely that this large species is also eaten by locals when caught (Holthuis 1991).|
It is unknown whether this species is being impacted by any major threats.
There are no species-specific conservation measures in place for this species.
Further research is recommended to determine whether this species is a true Easter Island endemic, and to learn more about the ecology, abundance and any threat that may be affecting this species.
