We suggest this species to be categorized as Least Concern (LC).
This species is known in 9 countries. This species is widely spread in tropical areas of South America.
There are about 6 records in 2 countries (GBIF). However, this number may be higher in other countries.
Population Trend: Uncertain
This species occurs in different Brazilian biomes: Amazon, Atlantic Forest, Cerrado and Caatinga.
In Brazil, the specie can be found in Tropical rainforest and Tropical Dry Forest. However, these forests currently have higher rates of deforestation, especially the Atlantic Forest, which is considered a hotspot.
This species can be multiplied in trap culture, which may help in the maintenance of this species in the future.
Other areas should be studied in order to assess the distribution of this species.
