"Red List Category & Criteria: Near Threatened ver 3.1 Year Assessed: 2010 Assessor/s: Arisdason, W. Reviewer/s: Rasingam, L., Lakshminarasimhan, P., Raghavan, R. & Gunaga, S. Contributors: Molur, S. Justification: Cryptocoryne consobrina is assessed as Near Threatened as there is a continuing decline in the quality of habitat as well as decrease in the area of occupancy and extent of occurrence. It is also found in less than ten locations. However, its extent of occurrence is just above the threshold for Vulnerable. Further surveys are needed in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka to determine the distribution and population status of this species as Cook (1996) has mentioned that the species is perhaps extinct in these states. Assessment History: 1997 - Indeterminate (Walter and Gillett 1998) Conservation Actions: No conservation actions are known to be taken for this species. A part of the range of this species falls under the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, B.R. Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, Rajiv Gandhi National Park."
