Justification of Red List category

This species has been up-listed to Vulnerable because the species eastern range appears to be rapidly retracting north and it is contested that three sub-populations, each containing less than 1000 individuals, remains valid. Further, it is arguable that the entire population remains below the critical threshold of 1000 individuals with large areas suspected to be undergoing continued habitat clearance and degradation.

Population size: 1400

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 4,030,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - Australia
