Polidoro, B., Knapp, L. & Carpenter, K.E. Justification
This species is only known from southern Argentina and Chile, where it may be abundant. Although it is found in relatively shallow waters there is little fishing activity within its range. It is listed as Least Concern. However, this species should be carefully monitored, as it has a restricted range and a crustacean trap fishery is opening up within the Straits of Magellan, which will increase its vulnerability to capture as bycatch.
