|Major Threat(s):||There appear to be no major threats to the species at present or in the immediate future.|
|Conservation Actions:||This species does not appear to be known from any protected areas. Additional studies are needed into the taxonomy, distribution, abundance, general ecology and possible long-term threats to this species.|
