Scientific Name: Caridina hova

Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Least Concern ver 3.1
Year Published: 2013
Date Assessed: 2012-03-05
Assessor(s): De Grave, S.
Reviewer(s): Cumberlidge, N. & Smith, K.
Justification:
This species is known from two widely separated areas in Madagascar, the area surrounding Tôlanaro (Fort Dauphin)  in the south-east, and in the Andringitra National Park (Andriamihaja 1996).  In the area around Tôlanaro (Fort Dauphin), the species was recorded from small forest brooks as well as a marsh, whist the material from the Andringitra National Park was collected in the main portion of the Iantara River.   It is anticipated that the species will prove to be more widespread because it may be present in between the two disjunct locations given the demonstrated ecological plasticity of the material collected.  As such this species is deemed to be of Least Concern.
