Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2013
Date Assessed: 2009-03-20
Assessor(s): Contu, S.
Reviewer(s): Scott, J.A.
Justification:
Blyxa javanica is assessed as Data Deficient. The species is currently only known from its first description (Hasskarl 1843). It was not described in a revision of the genus (Cook and Luond 1983) indicating there may be problems with this name. Considering the conversion of habitat to cultivated areas and settlements in the vicinity of Ganggang, Java, it is likely that if B. javanica is confirmed as an accepted name it could be highly threatened or even extinct. However, at present considering present knowledge a rating of Data Deficient based on taxonomic uncertainty is given.
