Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small range across a small number of islands and atolls. Its range is declining as a result of ongoing colonisation of range islands by Black Rats, and a small number of further rat introductions or cyclone events could rapidly affect all remaining island populations. For these reasons, the species is listed as Vulnerable.

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 92,000 km2
