Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range, in which habitat is being destroyed and degraded, although its population is not regarded as severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations. Given its range size, the species is likely to have a small to moderately small population, which is inferred to be undergoing a continued, but unquantified, decline. For these reasons the species is currently considered Near Threatened, but further studies are required in order to clarify its status and ecological requirements.
