Red List Status

Data Deficient (DD)


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.

Taxonomic Notes

When the first assessment for this species was published (in 2006) it was under the generic name Calluella. Calluella Stoliczka, 1872 is now recognised as  a junior synonym of Glyphoglossus Gunther, 1869 "1868" (Peloso et al. 2016), hence the transfer of this species to the genus Gylyphoglossus. This is not a reassessment of the status of this species; instead it is an updated version of the original assessment to reflect this taxonomic change.
