This ground-dwelling detritivorous snail of Least Concern is found in lowland to mid-elevation forests throughout Fiji and Tonga. There are no major threats facing this snail although large parts of its range are subject to habitat loss through deforestation and ongoing habitat degradation through shifting cultivation, wood extraction (including logging), invasive species such as rats (Rattus spp.), ants, domestic fowl (Gallus gallus) and pigs (Sus scrofa) . Also the low relief of the islands which this snail is present on in the Pacific means its habitat is potentially susceptible to changes in sea-level rises and increases in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events associated with climate change.
There are no specific conservation measures in place for this snail and none are believed to be necessary.
