Justification of Red List category
This species has an extremely small range on one small group of islands where it is currently common. The range is not yet severely fragmented or restricted to few locations. For these reasons, the species is classified as Near Threatened. However, it could decline rapidly if alien predators such as brown tree snake Boiga irregularis
were introduced, and would then warrant uplisting to a higher threat category.
Distribution size (breeding/resident):
Land-mass type - oceanic island - Oceanic islands are islands or island groups that are <200,000 sq km in size and separated from other land masses by >200 m sea depth. Generally Oceanic islands are islands or island groups that are <200,000 sq km in size and separated from other land masses by >200 m sea depth. Generally they have never been connected to a continental area by a land-ridge, and are volcanic in origin.
