Justification of Red List category
This species is known from a small range and is restricted to a specialised forest habitat that is under threat from logging, agriculture, dam construction and encroachment. The species has been suspected to decline moderately rapidly and so ongoing and future declines over three generations have been suspected to be at least >30%. Therefore, the species is now listed as Vulnerable, but further information regarding the rate of decline may mean the species's status warrants reassessment.
