Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    Of least concern (LC) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    This species is listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a threatened category. Conservation measures should still, however, be undertaken for this species.
  • 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 e perché è poco probabile che sia in declino abbastanza rapido per rientrare in una categoria di minaccia.
