Justification of Red List category
Although this species has a small range, it does not meet any subcriterion under the range size criterion (extent of occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). Similarly, the population, while considered moderately small, is suspected to be stable, thus does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations) or the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

Population size: 1200-20000, 10000-19999

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,300 km2

Country endemic: Yes
