This species is common in the Federated States of Micronesia and although the species may be affected by sedimentation from sakau farming, this is not seen as a major threat at this time. The species is listed as Least Concern. However, as there is no detailed population data and no information on the life history of the species, further research is recommended on ecology and population for this species.
