This is a widespread species with no known major widespread threats that is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a threatened category. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern. It was previously assessed as Data Deficient due to lack of information.
In eastern and southern Africa, the species is listed as Data Deficient in view of it paucity of records (one specimen each from two localities 1,500 km apart). Ceriagrion mourae Pinhey, 1969 was described from Mamunge, Mozambique and not recorded since. It was only found recently in the Rufiji Delta, east Tanzania more than 1,500 km north of the type locality (leg. Viola Clausnitzer, 6-11 May 2001). Despite the paucity of records, the species is only listed as Data Deficient, since a much wider distribution at least between these two localities is assumed. The habitat were seasonal pools in Miombo Woodland, an area, which is in large areas difficult to access and not within the survey spectrum for aquatic insects.
|Range Description:||The species has been recorded from Tanzania (Kichi Hills south of the Rufiji Delta) and Mozambique (the type locality). It occurs within Miombo woodlands from Mozambique northwards, and is likely to be widespread in suitable habitat within the Miombo forest areas.
In eastern Africa, it has been recorded from the Kichi Hills south of the Rufiji Delta (Tanzania).
In southern Africa, this species is known only from one site in Mozambique (the type locality).
Native:Mozambique; Tanzania, United Republic of
