Justification of Red List category
This partridge is listed as Near Threatened because, despite its small population and very small range, it occurs at many sites and the largest subpopulation is believed to be close to 1,000 mature individuals. While deforestation in the region is suspected to be causing a population decline, the rate of this decline is not currently thought to be sufficently rapid to approach the thresholds for listing as Vulnerable owing to the reported tolerance that this species and congeners show to a degree of forest degradation.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 10,100 km2

Country endemic: No

Land-mass type - continent
Realm - Indomalayan
