Justification
The range of this species is restricted to a 20 km length of coastline. Oil prospecting has been carried out along Angola's coast and eventually oil exploration may have an effect on Angola's coast in the future, but is there is no current development of these activities. Because of the size of its range and its vulnerability to threats to its habitat, this species has been assessed as Vulnerable D2.

Threats

Major Threats
There are no known specific threats to this species at this time. Oil prospection has been going on along the Angolan coast, but there is no further development on this at the moment, so this is not considered a current threat; it may be more significant in the future if oil drilling commences (M. J. Tenorio and S. Veldsman pers. comm. 2011).
