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.
In notheastern Africa, the species was listed by Tsuda for Sudan, although this record needs confirmation. Occurrence in northern Kenya likely as well. Until more information is available, the species is listed as Not Applicable for the region.

In central Africa, it is known from Angola, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Zambia, in Central African Republic expected.
