Justification of Red List category
This species has an extremely small range, which is continuing to decline as coastal dry woodland is cleared to make way for agriculture, housing and especially tourism developments. Consequently it warrants Endangered status. Further information is needed to confirm whether the population is likely to decline by ≥80% in three generations (15 years), if evidence supports such a decline this species would warrant uplisting to Critically Endangered.

Population trend: Decreasing
