Justification of Red List category
This species is considered Endangered because it has a very small population, which is feared to be declining due to the degradation and loss of its habitat. In this context, the species's rarity indicates that the population may well be comprised of extremely small subpopulations. The species is however tolerant of some degree of habitat modification; if declines are found to be less severe than thought, the species may be downlisted.
