This bat is assessed as Data Deficient in view of continuing uncertainty over assigned occurrence records and populations to this taxon. Many of the possible records of this species are assigned to M. chiloensis, so the only confirmed geographic record remains its type locality. Available information is inadequate to make a direct assessment of its status.
