Population Trend


Major Threats

Habitat loss due to agricultural encroachment, infrastructure development for human settlement and agricultural pollution are threats to the species.

Conservation Actions

It is not known whether or not this species occurs in any protected areas. More research into the species' Extent of Occurrence, ecological requirements and population status is needed.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Taxonomic Notes

Caramaschi and Cruz (1998) revalidated this species and resurrected it from the synonymy of Pseudis paradoxa.
