Justification of Red List category
This species qualifies as Critically Endangered because it has an extremely small population with a severely fragmented distribution. Awareness campaigns directed at local people, further surveys and concerted conservation action (the beginnings of which are apparent) appear to be improving its status such that the population may have ceased to decline. If this is confirmed, the species may warrant downlisting in the future.
