NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G3 - Vulnerable
Reasons: Small range in streams in the Rio Grande and Pecos river drainages in Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico; habitat has been degraded by dams, water diversion, invasive plants, pollution, and other factors; vulnerable to wanton killing and collection for the pet trade; locally common in some areas, relatively uncommon in other parts of the range; better information is needed on population size and trends.
Intrinsic Vulnerability: Highly to moderately vulnerable.
