|Species Authority:||(Jordan, 1884)|
Heterandria ommata Jordan, 1884
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Smith, K. & Darwall, W.R.T.|
|Facilitator/Compiler(s):||Hammerson, G.A. & Ormes, M.|
Listed as Least Concern in view of the large extent of occurrence, large number of subpopulations, large population size, and lack of major threats. Trend over the past 10 years or three generations is uncertain but likely relatively stable, or the species may be declining but not fast enough to qualify for any of the threatened categories under Criterion A (reduction in population size).
|Range Description:||Atlantic and Gulf Slope drainages from the Ogeechee River drainage, Georgia, and west at least to Perdido River drainage, Florida and Alabama; south to central Florida. One record from Escatawpa River, southeastern Mississippi. Common, locally abundant (Page and Burr 1991).|
