Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small range, occurring on a limited number of small and isolated islands, and is therefore likely to be susceptible to habitat loss and modification. Slow declines may already be occurring as a result of logging; however, the species's habitat and population are not regarded as being severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations. Consequently this species is considered Near Threatened.
