From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species is known only from a single specimen, collected at around 7m asl near Rockstone along the Essequibo River, upper Demerara-Berbice (formerly Mazaruni Potaro) District, Guyana. There does not appear to be any reason why this species should not occur more widely, but apparently the species has not been searched for since the original specimen was collected.

Habitat and Ecology

The habitat around the type locality is flooded riparian tall evergreen forest, and this species is presumed to be a larval developer.

Population

There is no information available on its population status.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

There are no known threats to this species.

Conservation Actions

It is not known to occur in any protected areas. It is listed on CITES Appendix II.

Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)

Rationale

Listed as Data Deficient since it has only recently been described, and there is still very little information on its extent of occurrence, status and ecological requirements.
