There are no known conservation actions in place for this species. Research into its population, life history, and threats is needed alongside monitoring of habitat trends and the development of an area-based management plan. Site and habitat protection is also recommended. Public educational programmes should be put in place to raise awareness on the vulnerability of the species due to habitat fragmentation or modification.
The species is only known from the Musi River drainage in South Sumatra Province, Indonesia (Tan 2009).
Current population trends are unknown.
Large-scale conversion of peat swamp forests to industrial-scale forestry, urbanistation and monoculture plantations pose a threat to this species (Giam et al. 2012).
