Justification of Red List category
This recently described species is listed as Near Threatened because, although it is only known from fewer than six locations, and thus has a very restricted range, there are no immediate threats that could result in it being uplisted to Critically Endangered or Extinct in a short space of time. There remains a potentially serious threat from dam construction, however, the initiation of which could make the species eligible for a threatened category.
