Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Vulnerable because it has a small population, a small, severely fragmented range, and it is continuing to decline because of on-going habitat loss. In addition, it is thought to have undergone a rapid population reduction. However, recent surveys have identified additional populations and a number of new forest areas that hold the species have been designated as protected areas, providing hope that its status may improve in the future.
