Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range within which it may be in decline owing to increases in forest clearance and degradation as the human population expands; however, it is not restricted to a few locations and its tolerance of human-modified habitats means that its population is unlikely to be severely fragmented. It is therefore listed as Near Threatened.
