Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range, being limited to a number of small islands. Population declines are suspected to be occurring owing to habitat loss, and the situation requires careful monitoring for any future increases in the rate of human development. However, the species's habitat and population are not regarded as severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations. It is therefore currently considered Near Threatened.
