Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small range, occupying a limited number of small islands. It could be declining slowly as a result of limited habitat loss and degradation, as logging is occurring in some areas, although most of its habitat is apparently intact. It is therefore considered Near Threatened, but further studies are urgently needed in order to clarify its status.

Population size: unknown

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 5,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - oceanic island
