Justification of Red List category
This species has a moderately small range, within which its area of occupancy is highly uncertain, and may fall beneath the threshold for listing as threatened, but is considered more likely to exceed it. The number of locations is also uncertain, and may approach the threshold for listing as threatened. Its habitat quality is inferred to be declining due to uncontrolled fires and its area of habitat is projected to decline as a result of climate change. It is consequently classified as Near Threatened.
