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 (30% or greater) to qualify for listing in a more threatened category at the global level.
  • Italy
    Lc - minor preoccupazione (Source: IUCN Liste Rosse Italiane)
    Valutata specie a Minor Preoccupazione (LC) per la sua distribuzione relativamente ampia, per la popolazione presumibilmente abbondante e perché è poco probabile che sia in declino abbastanza rapido per rientrare in una categoria di minaccia.
