Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small range, covering a number of small islands, and is likely to have a moderately small global population size. It is probably in decline owing to habitat loss, although its habitat and population are not regarded as severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations. It is therefore currently considered Near Threatened, but further studies are urgently required to clarify its status.
