Justification of Red List category
The species is remarkably poorly-known with a tiny number of modern records, frustrating attempts to estimate range size, population size and trend. Consequently the species is classified as Data Deficient. A reassessment of the effort to date in areas where the species would have been expected to be encountered may prompt a listing of this species at a high threat category.
