Many combined influences are connected to the decline and endangerment of the "
decorata" populations. The biggest reasons for their critical endangerment are due to sedimentation and stream pollution, road construction and maintenance, runoff, mining, and several other human generated problems.
This species was called by the common name "Alabama heelsplitter" in the standard reference, Turgeon, 1998. Because another species "
alabamensis" was also given that same name in that publication, this duplication of name caused some confusion. Therefore the common name of this species was subsequently changed to "inflated heelsplitter".
Part of Lynches River has been designated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as critical habitat for the federally endangered Carolina heelsplitter, "
decorata", a freshwater mussel. The Carolina heelsplitter is a medium-sized freshwater mussel, reaching almost 4.5 inches (110 mm) in length, with a greenish brown to dark brown shell. It is threatened by pollution and silting and only six small populations still are known to exist.
When the recovery plan was written, there were only four known populations of "
decorata". The original report stated that the populations appeared to have extremely restricted distribution and that much of the habitat in the species historic range (Catawba, Pee Dee, Saluda, and Savannah River systems) is now unsuitable for the reintroduction of the species. The recovery plan also stated that it was very important that the species were extensively enough established so the population couldn’t be completely wiped out by one major event involving their habitat.
