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.
Unknown mature individuals
Distribution size (breeding/resident):
Land-mass type - oceanic island - Oceanic islands are islands or island groups that are <200,000 sq km in size and separated from other land masses by >200 m sea depth. Generally Oceanic islands are islands or island groups that are <200,000 sq km in size and separated from other land masses by >200 m sea depth. Generally they have never been connected to a continental area by a land-ridge, and are volcanic in origin.
