Justification of Red List category
This species is only known from the Uluguru Nature Reserve. It has an extremely small range, within which its habitat is declining in area and quality, but a re-assessment of its extent of occurrence using a Minimum Convex Polygon means it no longer meets the threshold for listing as Critically Endangered. However, its range is sufficiently small that it does warrant listing as Endangered.
