Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small and declining range, but its population is not severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations. Its population trends are poorly known; however, it may undergo a moderately rapid population decline in the near future owing to the twin ravages of trapping and deforestation. For these reasons it is classified as Near Threatened.
