Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): There is no information on threats to this species.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: To aid its conservation, more research is urgently needed into its extent of occurrence, ecological requirements and population status, in particular to determine whether or not it has a restricted range, if it is subject to any major threats, and if it occurs in any protected areas.
