Assessor(s): Loiselle, P. & participants of the CBSG/ANGAP CAMP "Faune de Madagascar" workshop, Mantasoa, Madagascar 2001

Justification:
This is an undescribed species with voucher specimens held at the American Museum of Natural History and University of Michigan Museum of Zoology. This species is abundant in the mid-reaches of the Ivoloina river basin. Its range extends into an area of protected forest which serves to protect limnological integrity of the upper and middle Ivoloina by preserving the basin’s forested catchment. However, due to its restricted range (extent of occurrence and area of occupancy of less than 20,000 km² and 2,000 km², respectively) and continuing decline in habitat due to deforestation outside the forest reserve a Vulnerable assessment is appropriate.
