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.
The species is widespread in eastern and southern Africa.
In central Africa, it is known from Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Zambia.
In eastern Africa, it has been recorded in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Malawi, where it is common and widespread. It is assumed to occur also in Burundi.
In northeastern Africa, the species is known from a record from Tsuda in Somalia but this requires confirmation. It is assumed to be present in Uganda.
In southern Africa, this species is widespread in perennial rivers in most of the region.
