Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    Of least concern (LC) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a broad range of habitats, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
  • Italy
    LC - Minor Preoccupazione (Source: IUCN Liste Rosse Italiane)
    Valutata specie a Minor Preoccupazione (LC) per la sua ampia distribuzione, per la popolazione presumibilmente ampia, per la tolleranza a una vasta varietà di habitat e perché è poco probabile che sia in declino abbastanza rapido per rientrare in una categoria di minaccia.
