Conservation ActionsResearch is needed to confirm the taxonomic status of the species. Further intensive survey is required to confirm whether any individuals of the species still remain in the wild.
Location InformationThis fish is likely endemic to Java as it has only been recorded from Surakarta, possibly from the Bengawan Solo basin, in Central Java. The species was originally described by Bleeker (1855) based only on a single specimen, which also constitutes the last and only record for the species to date. In consequence, the geographical range of this fish can not be determined for certain.
