Justification of Red List category
This species is classified as Vulnerable on the basis of a very small occupied range, although this assumes that it does not occur across all of one island (Rambutyo). If the historical decline proves to be ongoing or if the cause of this species's disappearance from another island (Manus) is thought to threaten populations on the other islands, then it may be uplisted to a higher category of threat.

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,200 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - oceanic island
