Justification of Red List category
This species qualifies as Vulnerable because it has a small and fragmented island distribution and is likely to continue to decline owing to ongoing depredation by black rats and, to a lesser extent, cats. However, there is some evidence that the population is stable, in which case it would qualify for a lower threat category.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 75,500 km2

Country endemic: No

Land-mass type - oceanic island
