Total adult population size is unknown but very large. This species is common in much of its range. Overall Threat Impact Comments: In Florida, threats include reduced water quality, loss of natural aquatic vegetative cover, alteration of natural stream flows, and barriers such as floodgates and salinity dams Gilmore Relatively Stable Short-term Trend Comments: Trend over the past three generations is uncertain but probably relatively stable or slowly declining.

Maintain streams in natural condition with respect to flow, vegetation, and water quality.
