Justification of Red List category
There are some indications that this species has a moderately small population, occupying a small range, which are both in decline owing to human pressures on forest. However, little is currently known about the species's population size and structure, and the impact of potential threats, and its tolerance of habitat modification means that it is unlikely to be severely fragmented. It is therefore listed as Near Threatened.
