Population Information

The habitat of this species undergoes fluctuations in water level and this leads to extreme fluctuations in the extent of occurrence (EOO) with at least a tenfold change in the EOO as the habitat changes from a small creek in the dry season to a lake in the wet season. The population of this species fluctuates with the water level (G.R. Allen pers. comm. 2019), but the overall population trend is unknown.


The habitat of this species undergoes fluctutations in water level, which are likely to be exacerbated by climate change.
