Justification of Red List category
This species was thought to have a moderately small range which was suspected to be decreasing owing to habitat loss, and within which it was known from few locations. It was consequently classified as Near Threatened. Its range was remapped in 2010 and found to be well above the threshold at which a species may be considered Vulnerable. It has therefore been downlisted to Least Concern.
