Justification of Red List category
This poorly-known species is undoubtedly very rare and has a very small known range. It appears to have very specific habitat requirements and, while a large area of its habitat remains, forest clearance and degradation are likely to be causing declines in range and numbers. It therefore qualifies as Endangered.
