This species is found in association with a variety of Nothofagus species throughout Patagonia. It is not thought to be under significant threat and would not approach the thresholds for listing as threatened under any criterion. Therefore, it is listed as Least Concern.
Basionym = Jafneadelphus argentinus Rifai
This species occurs throughout Patagonia, in Nothofagus forests. There have been reports from Australia, but they are not included in this assessment as these records probably represent a different species.
This species fruits abundantly, and the total population size is considered to be larger than the the thresholds for listing under a threatened category. The species is not thought to face any major threats, and so the population is suspected to be stable.
Population Trend: Stable
