Currently there are no major threats to this species. However, coastal development might be a minor threat in some areas of northern Tasmania (N. Doran pers. comm. 2009). Broad scale habitat change and changes in weather, water and drainage patterns due to climate change could become a major issue in the future. As this species is most abundant on lowland islands and coastal habitats, future sea level rise might also be a potential threat (N. Doran pers. comm. 2009).
