Conservation ActionsSacalia quadriocellata has been listed on CITES Appendix II since 2013. The primary conservation measure needed for S. quadriocellata (and many other species and their ecosystem) is the creation of secure, adequately managed protected areas with suitable habitat. Surveys to evaluate the status and occurrence of populations can be integrated into broader biodiversity surveys. It is also necessary for enhanced enforcement relating to illegal trade.
Location InformationSacalia quadriocellata occurs in southern mainland China (Guangdong and Guangxi), Hainan (China), eastern Lao PDR and Viet Nam. It occurs in both the east-flowing Annamite drainages as well as upper reaches of Mekong tributaries in Lao PDR. It ranges as far south in Viet Nam as Khanh Hoa.
