Justification of Red List category
This forest-associated species is suspected to be undergoing a moderately rapid decline owing to the extensive and continuing loss of forest from large areas of the Sundaic lowlands. It is somewhat tolerant of second growth habitats and, for now at least, is not considered threatened, but approaches this status under Criterion A. It is therefore listed as Near Threatened.
