Justification of Red List category
This species is restricted to a very small range, in which its forest habitat is not thought to be seriously threatened at present. However, climate change may lead to a range contraction, and thus the species is feared to undergo declines in range size and habitat quality. In the future, these declines may also lead to a decline in the population size. Therefore, the species is listed as Near Threatened.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 526 km2

Country endemic: No
