Justification of Red List category
This species is relatively common within its range, but given that this area is very restricted the global population is thought to be moderately small. It is also thought to be losing suitable habitat through logging pressure, and therefore is considered Near Threatened. Recent records from heavily degraded habitats suggest it may be resilient to habitat degradation and current concerns of its status may prove unwarranted in the future.

Population size: Unknown mature individuals

Population trend: Decreasing

Distribution size (breeding/resident): 3,500 km2
