Rhabdops olivaceus is listed as Least Concern as this species has an extent of occurrence of 57,000 km2. The species, however, appears to have a sporadic distribution within this area, it faces local threats from declines in habitat quality, and population declines have been reported. It is recommended that future studies focus on determining population trends in this species to ensure that it does not warrant listing in a more threatened category in future.
|Range Description:||Rhabdops olivaceus is endemic to the Western Ghats (India) and is known from south of Koyna Dam, Satara district, Maharashtra to Thrissur, Kerala (Smith 1943, Whitaker and Captain 2004). Within this wide area (an estimated extent of occurrence of approximately 57,000 km2), its distribution appears to be sporadic. It occurs between 600 and 2,300 m asl.|
