|Reviewer(s):||Amori, G. (Small Nonvolant Mammal Red List Authority) & Schipper, J. (Global Mammal Assessment Team)|
Listed as Data Deficient in view of the absence of recent information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements. This species is suspected to be threatened, but the degree of threat is impossible to measure without more information on the species adaptability to habitat change and remaining area of occupancy.
|Range Description:||This marsupial is known from northeastern Brazil on Ilha Marajó, Pará, and possibly one small island to the west, Ihla Caldeirão (Eisenberg and Redford, 1999; Gardner, 2007).|

|Major Threat(s):||The loss of habitat will most probably have caused a decline in the population.|
|Conservation Actions:||Does not occur in any protected areas and surveys are needed to establish the extent of occurrence, ecology, and abundance.|
