Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

Although to be a well distributed species, in Brazil this species need attention because many records are from endangered biomes. Thus, I suggest this species to be categorized in Least Concern.

Cribraria violacea is known in 58 countries. In Brazil, it is known in 12 of 26 states.


Population and Trends

There are about 1255 records among 58 countries, 132 records are from Brazil.
