Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: There are no known conservation measures for this species. The species' distribution includes a number of Marine Protected Areas in the tropical eastern Pacific region. However, not all of the Marine Protected Areas have been considered to take action against major threats on the ecosystems. Many tropical eastern Pacific endemics are found in habitats that are not currently protected within Marine Protected Areas such as areas with soft substrata such as mud. More information/research about the possible environmental and human impacts that may affect its survival are needed.
