This is a widespread species with no major widespread threats known. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern.
|Range Description:||Anax parthenope ranges from Europe and North Africa over the Arabian Peninsula eastwards, through Nepal and India, to China and Japan. Recently a young female was found near Omsk constituting by far the most northern record of the species on the Siberian plain (Kosterin 2007). These records suggest that the northwards expansion of the species is taking place over very wide range.|
