Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Near Threatened because there are some indications that its very small range is occupied by a moderately small, fragmented population which is undergoing a continuing decline owing to forest loss and degradation. However, little is currently known about the species's population size and structure, and the impact of threats, and its population is not regarded as severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations.

Population trend: Decreasing

Distribution size (breeding/resident): 2,000 km2

Country endemic: No
