Conservation ActionsNo conservation actions are in place. Surveys are needed to ascertain the species' exact distribution.
Location InformationThe species is known only from a short section (c.2 km long) of a small tributary of the upper Nam Phao, a tributary of the Nam Theun, in the Mekong drainage in Lao PDR (Bolikamsai Province), almost on the border with Viet Nam. It might be present elsewhere in adjacent streams, but survey has not yet been possible.
