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 central Africa, scattered records are known over a wide range. The species is assumed to be widespread within its range and thus does not qualify for a listing in a threat category. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern.
In southern Africa, this species appears to be locally common, and is known from more around 20 records in 20 localities (19 records from within the southern Africa region). It may be that this species is not threatened, however current population status and specific threats are not known, therefore it is currently assessed as Data Deficient in the region.
