||The type locality for Acisoma panorpoides ascalaphoides is Madagascar. It is not currently certain that the populations of Madagascar and mainland Africa are similar (K. Schütte in Dijkstra and Boudot 2010), so it is likely that the present subspecific name will have to change in the future for Africa.
This species previously appeared on the IUCN Red List as Acisoma panorpoides ssp. ascalaphoides but it has now been promoted to Acisoma ascalaphoides.

This species is endemic to Madagascar where it known from three littoral forest sites: two in the south east and one from the northern east coast. It has an extent of occurrence (EOO) of 5,884 km² and an area of occupancy (AOO) of 16 km². The species experiences continuing decline in its habitat quality and extent due to ongoing deforestation in the north east and mining activities in the south east parts of its range. Based on these threats 2-3 locations have been identified. Therefore, the species is assessed as Endangered.
