Type locality: Colón (Atlantic) (Ref. 46206). If the species occurs only in the Limon Bay and Gatun locks area, then it would be critically endangered. The construction of the new canal and pollution from shipping have impact in the habitat. Also, specimens inhabiting Gatun Locks and the surrounding Gatun Lake are subject to predation by the introduced cichlid, Cichla ocellaris Bloch & Schneider 1801, which was reporte to have eliminated seven of the eleven most common fish species within the lake (Ref. 104557).
