Justification of Red List category
The species has a small global population and is in decline as a result of habitat loss. However, the rate of decline is not certain and the species is not known to undergo extreme fluctuations. Without clear subpopulation estimates, the population structure is difficult to assess; yet it is likely that the population is fragmented, with individuals restricted to several small subpopulations. Given the large amount of uncertainty over this, the species is precautionarily classified as Near Threatened; although if further information becomes available the species may warrant further uplisting.
