Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    Of least concern (LC) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    There is a need to revise the taxonomic status of this species in the southeastern corner of its range, especially with regards to its relationship with T. nigriceps. Preliminary data lumps the species together (Petros Lymberakis pers. comm..) Records from Jordan are under investigation and are considered to be T. cf. nigriceps (Ahmad Mohammed Mousa Disi pers. comm.)..
  • Italy
    Lc - minor preoccupazione (Source: IUCN Liste Rosse Italiane)
    Nonostante l'areale italiano sia estremamente ridotto, esso è in continuità con l'areale principale (balcanico) e in Italia è specie comune e adattabile al disturbo antropico. Per queste ragioni la specie viene valutata a Minor Preoccupazione (LC).
