Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): There are no known threats impacting this species. However, if the range of this species is truly restricted to two single locations then it is at risk from threats relating to having such a small range, such as one-time catastrophic events (S. Adams pers. comm. 2009). In addition it has been noted that the type locality of this species is now surrounded by soybean, cotton and peanut farmland (P. Moler pers. comm. 2010).

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: This species has been given the heritage rank of G1 by NatureServe and Endangered by the American Fisheries Society (Taylor et al. 2007, NatureServe 2009). This is due to existing or potential destruction, modification, or reduction of a species' habitat or range, and restricted range (Criteria 1, 5) (Taylor et al. 2007, NatureServe 2009).
