Arthropod species (IUCN, 2016-2)
  • 9470 extant species have been evaluated
  • 6580 of those are fully assessed[a]
  • 4478 are not threatened at present[b]
  • 2100 to 4990 are threatened[c]
  • 83 to 169 are extinct or extinct in the wild:
    • 81 extinct (EX) species[d]
    • 2 extinct in the wild (EW)
    • 86 possibly extinct [CR(PE)]
    • 0 possibly extinct in the wild [CR(PEW)]

  1. ^ excludes data deficient evaluations.
  2. ^ NT, LR/cd, LC.
  3. ^ Threatened comprises CR, EN and VU. Upper estimate additionally includes DD.
  4. ^ Chart omits extinct (EX) species
Near Threatened (NT) species do not currently qualify for Critically Endangered (CR), Endangered (EN) or Vulnerable (VU), but are likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future, or are already close to qualifying.

No subpopulations of arthropods have been evaluated by the IUCN.
