Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range confined to the island of Morotai, Indonesia. It is relatively adaptive to degraded habitats but nonetheless is thought to be impacted by ongoing forest loss and degradation on the island. However, this remains slow and the species' population is not believed to be small. For these reasons it is listed as Near Threatened.
