Justification of Red List category
On account of recent rarity in records and absence across trade markets, this species is thought to have a smaller population size than previously considered. The population is inferred to be undergoing a continuing decline due to an unquantified threat from trapping for the domestic cage bird trade. As such, it has been uplisted to Endangered. If future surveys reveal that the species has a far more restricted range and population size that considered here, it may require a further change in status.

Population size: 250-999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 16,300 km2

Country endemic: Yes
