From the IUCN Red List Species Account:

 

Range Description

This species occurs in the Ethiopia highlands west of the Rift Valley, and in Eritrea, at altitudes of 800-2,500 m asl.

Habitat and Ecology

It is a highly aquatic species, particularly associated with permanent rivers, streams and large pools in both montane grassland and montane forest.

Population

It seems to be relatively common in several sites in Ethiopia, though it is almost certainly under-recorded because it is so difficult to catch.

Population Trend

unknown

Major Threats

Although not generally threatened, local populations are probably affected by environmental degradation resulting from human expansion and settlement, with the consequent exploitation of resources for subsistence and commercial purposes, as well as water pollution.

Conservation Actions

It is not known from any protected areas.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

Listed as Least Concern in view of its relatively wide distribution and presumed large population.
