Justification of Red List category
This species has a small known range, and thus probably has a  moderately small population, which may be becoming increasingly fragmented. Population declines are inferred to be occurring as a result of habitat loss, although large tracts of suitable habitat remain secure at present. It is therefore currently considered Near Threatened.

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 447,000 km2
