Justification of Red List category
This species is suspected to be in decline owing to habitat loss and degradation throughout its range. It is apparently tolerant of secondary and logged forests, suggesting that rates of decline are only likely to be moderately rapid. It is therefore currently considered Near Threatened, but may be eligible for downlisting if there is evidence that declines are less severe than previously considered.
