Relevant Information:

This species is threatened by the proposed dams on Siang River. The fast-flowing stream specialist's habitats will be converted to pools due to the construction of dams, which could impact drastically on the populations (W. Vishwanath 2009). Although the habitat of this species is not known, it most likely inhabits swift rivers with a sandy or rocky bottom, as with other congeners. Remarks: this species is classed as vulnerable in the Red List of Threatened species.
