Justification of Red List category
Results of a new study suggest that this species has a very large range and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion. The estimated population size is very large, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criteria. The population trend is difficult to determine because of uncertainty over the impacts of habitat modification and trapping on population sizes, but rapid declines are probably unlikely. This species is therefore classified as Least Concern.
