There are no species-specific conservation measures in place for this species. It is unlikely to require protection as it is relatively widespread across north eastern Tasmania, and its range overlaps with national parkland, including the South West Wilderness World Heritage Area. Future research should focus on establishing a broad scale audit (population trends, distribution and threats) and monitoring program across this genus and other burrowing crayfish as they are likely to be very sensitive indicators of habitat and climate change (N. Doran pers. comm. 2009).
