Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Near Threatened because it has a small population found in only one very small area. The current population trend for this species is uncertain, but when considered a subspecies of J. phaeonotus, the species was thought to be in decline. There is an absence of evidence to suggest that this still holds for this species, and so it has conservatively been considered as Near Threatened, and any evidence for a decline in its population size could lead to it being uplisted in the future.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Unknown

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 5,200 km2

Country endemic: Yes
