Justification of Red List category

This species has a small population comprising no more than 900-1,400 mature individuals. Ongoing habitat loss and degradation has caused substantial contractions in the species' range (it is now probably extinct in New South Wales and south-east Queensland) attributed to agriculture and forestry and an ongoing decline in mature individuals is inferred. For these reasons it is assessed as Endangered.

Population size: 900-1400,1340

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,600,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - Australia
