|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Reviewer(s):||Smith, S. & Polidoro, B.|
Stegastes sanctipauli is known only from St. Paul's Rocks. Although its area of occupancy (AOO) is very limited, St. Paul's Rocks is very isolated with only a military and research base on the island. This species is not utilized and is very common and abundant throughout its range of distribution. It is therefore listed as Least Concern.
