Conservation

This species can be considered an indicator species for primary and secondary Amazonian rainforest. It is not threatened and can be quite common.

However, the beetle is only found in forested areas and it depends on the availability of vertebrate animals for its survival.

These animals also rely on the forest, so the survival of all these species and their complex interactions with each other will depend on the preservation and conservation of areas of intact forest in the Amazon.
