Justification of Red List category
This species is likely to be at high risk from habitat loss, as it occurs largely in lowland forest habitats that are suffering the highest rates of deforestation. It remains relatively common within existing areas of suitable habitat across its large range, but it may be declining moderately rapidly and is therefore considered Near Threatened. Its status should be monitored carefully for any evidence of increasing rates of decline.
