Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small range within which its habitat is declining in extent, area and quality; and further population reductions are being caused by trapping and predation, qualifying the species as Vulnerable. It does not currently qualify as Endangered because habitat is not severely fragmented and it is known from more than five locations. However the species may qualify for uplisting in the future due to population declines should all three proposed mining concessions in Cockpit Country be granted.

Population size: 6000-15000 mature individuals

Population trend: Decreasing

Distribution size (breeding/resident): 2,600 km2

Country endemic: Yes
