Justification of Red List category
This species has a highly restricted and fragmented range, and is apparently now scarce and local, suggesting that it has declined. Although it is apparently tolerant of secondary habitats, it may have been affected negatively by logging and forest clearance. It is considered Near Threatened, and further studies are urgently needed in order to clarify the current magnitude of threats facing it.
