Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range and population, which is fragmented and declining owing to habitat destruction caused by illegal agriculture, logging and burning. Intensification of these pressures, and hence increased rates of population decline have led to its uplisting to Vulnerable. It may even warrant uplisting to Endangered once more detailed information on rates of forest loss becomes available.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 5,800 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - continent
