Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2011
Date Assessed: 2011-07-22
Assessor(s): Vinarski, M.
Reviewer(s): Böhm, M. & Collen, B.
Culmenella rezvoji has been assessed as Data Deficient. Due to population declines and continuing threats impacting the global population of this species, a higher threat category may become more appropriate with additional data. However, due to a current lack of population data, it can only be listed as Data Deficient. Further research is therefore required in order to establish the magnitude and extent of population declines in order to accurately assess this species.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:This species occurs in Japan and Russia. In Japan, it is found in the Kizaki-ko wetlands in Nagano Prefecture (Lakes Aoki, Kizaki, Nakatsuna, and Nogu-gawa); Lake Toyanogata in Niigata Prefecture; the Shimokita Peninsula in Aomori Prefecture; Tokyo, Kanagawa, Shizuoka, Fukui, Shiga, Osaka, and Saitama Prefectures (Ministry of the Environment 2002). In Kyoto and Gunma Prefectures, it has not been recorded in recent years. In Russia, it is known from the Primorsky region (except for the northeast) and the Amur basin (Kantor et al. 2009).
Countries occurrence:

Population [top]

Population:Populations in many Japanese Prefectures, for example Kyoto, have declined to record lows recently (Red Data Book of Japan). This species is listed as Extinct in Gunma Prefecture (Natural Environment Division of Environment and Forests 2001). There is no further population information available.
Current Population Trend:Decreasing
Additional data:
Population severely fragmented:No

Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:This species occurs in wetlands and "shallow permanent water bodies", including fens, lakes and marshes (Kantor et al. 2009). It is usually found in the littoral zone in reed beds and even in rice fields, and associates with submerged plants such as Elodea spp., attaching to the top of the plant or submerging in muddy substrate (Red Data Book of Japan).

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): Threats to this species include water pollution, river modification, habitat degradation, agriculture, and the decline in associated aquatic plant species.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: This species is classified as Endangered (EN)/ Critically Endangered (CR) in Japan's Red Data Book. It is most highly endangered in Tokyo and Kanagawa (Red Data Book of Japan). Further research is recommended on population trends and the true extent of the threat processes impacting the global population of this species.
