Outside of a recording made in Tiruchirappalli, India, in 1834, there don’t appear to be any records of this species. Information regarding the habitat preferences of this species and its potential threats appears to be similarly lacking. Further research is needed to confirm this species’ existence in the wild, and the extent to which it may be threatened, and so this species is listed as DD until such research is carried out.
