A restricted range species (extent of occurrence (EOO) <5,000 km²) only known from less than five locations which are impacted by water extraction, introduced species and pollution. This has resulted in a decline in EOO and area of occupancy (AOO) and many subpopulations are reported to have been lost in Croatia. Habitat quality has also declined due to habitat modifications such as resulting from hydropower developments.
