Justification of Red List category
This scarce and poorly known species is thought to have a moderately small global population size as a result of its narrow habitat requirements and strong association with giant honey bee Apis dorsata
colonies. It is likely to be declining as a result of habitat loss and honey extraction by humans, and is therefore considered Near Threatened.
Unknown mature individuals
