There is no population information for this species. The main population occurs off India where it is known in abundant numbers from dredging. Presence is uncertain in the Red Sea and the species is rare in Somalia. Dredging in Indian waters has decreased from past levels, so the main population in India is likely to be stable. However, status of other populations is uncertain (G. Raybaudi pers comm. October 2011).
