|Reviewer(s):||Smith, K. & Darwall, W.R.T.|
|Facilitator/Compiler(s):||Hammerson, G.A. & Ormes, M.|
This species is 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 to be 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 coasts from southeastern New York (including Long Island) to St. Johns River drainage, Florida, and west to Aucilla River drainage, Florida and Georgia; common except at extremes of range (Page and Burr 1991).|

|Population:||This species is represented by a large number of subpopulations and locations.|
Total adult population size is unknown but relatively large.
Trend over the past 10 years or three generations is uncertain but likely to be relatively stable or slowly declining.
|Current Population Trend:||Stable|
|Habitat and Ecology:||Quiet, mud-bottomed, often heavily vegetated streams, sloughs, swamps, and ponds, particularly along margins, over sand, mud, and debris. Spawning sites are probably similar to those of Umbra limi.|
|Movement patterns:||Not a Migrant|
|Major Threat(s):||Localized threats may exist, but on a range-wide scale no major threats are known.|
|Conservation Actions:||Currently, on a range-wide basis, this species is of relatively low conservation concern and does not require significant additional protection or major management, monitoring, or research action.|
