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 InformationThe species is only known from the type locality in the upper reaches of the Citarum basin in western Java and it has never been reported again since the original description (Kottelat and Tan 2008). Therefore, the species is probably endemic to western Java.
The geographical range of this fish cannot be determined for certain, but considering the estimated range of the species as the upper reaches of the Citarum basin, if it is extant, its extent of occurrence may be at most approximately 4,850 km2 (based on total area within a minimum convex polygon around sites where the species has been recorded and where some potential habitats may be located).
