Justification of Red List category
The continuing rapid reduction in the area of lowland forest throughout this species's range, coupled with more localised trapping pressure, is thought to be causing a rapid population decline. However, this species is known to be tolerant of secondary habitats, and may be more widespread than is currently thought. It is therefore listed as Vulnerable, pending better information on population size and distribution.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 233,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - shelf island
