It appears that the species is still present in the wild within its previous range, but the location of the specimens found in the aquarium trade is not currently known. The species is assessed as Critically Endangered based on its previous population decline of more than 90%.
Further research is needed to confirm the source of remaining specimens from the wild and should benefit from conservation effort to protect habitat and prevent further exploitation.
Although considered possibly extirpated, it is apparently still present in the wild, but probably in localised populations.
The species is listed in the Thai Red Data book as threatened.
