Pseudanthias cichlops has been assessed as Least Concern. This is a wide-ranging species with no major threats impacting it across its entire range. It is therefore unlikely to be undergoing any significant population decline.
|Range Description:||The distribution of Pseudanthias cichlops extends south from Japan to the Indian Ocean.|
Native:Indonesia; Japan; Philippines; Taiwan, Province of China
|FAO Marine Fishing Areas:||
Indian Ocean – eastern; Indian Ocean – western; Pacific – northwest; Pacific – western central

|Population:||There is no population information available for Pseudanthias cichlops.|
|Habitat and Ecology:||Pseudanthias cichlops is found in the mid-euphotic zone at depths ranging of 20-40 m on rocky tropical reefs and current-prone soft-bottom slopes.|
|Major Threat(s):||It is unlikely that Pseudanthias cichlops is being impacted by any major threat processes. Although this species is not harvested for the aquarium trade, other species within the Pseudanthias genus are regularly collected. Rocky tropical reefs within this species' range are susceptible to habitat degradation from dynamite fishing, but this is currently considered to be a localized threat only.|
|Conservation Actions:||There are no species-specific conservation measures in place for Psudanthias cichlops. However, there are 52 marine protected areas around Japan, some which incorporate this species' rocky reef habitat. There are also conservation management plans for reefs off the coast of Japan, as well as Crown of Thorns starfish extermination projects, which have been met with some success. Further research is needed on threats to this species and its habitat status.|
