This species is only known from a small area of southwestern Taiwan. It was once considered abundant, but has historically been targeted by local fisheries which have declined significantly to the point that the fishery ceased in the late 1990s. However, little or no baseline population data is available to calculate decline. It is listed as Data Deficient. More information is needed on this species distribution, population status, life history, biology, and the impact of current and historical threats.
