Justification of Red List category
This species's known range is extremely small and it would qualify as Critically Endangered if it were not currently known from five locations. Habitat is declining rapidly at one site and, to a lesser extent, at the other. It therefore qualifies as Endangered, but remains poorly known, and further records or research may lead to reassessment of its status.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 2,200 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - continent
