Justification of Red List category
Although this species has a restricted range, the population is currently believed to be stable and there are no direct threats expected to be capable of causing a significant population reduction in the near future. Should there be evidence of a decline in the population size (which needs estimating) or the extent of suitable habitat, then the species would quickly qualify for listing as a threatened species because of its small range.
In the absence of threats that could plausibly cause a significant population reduction in the near future, the species is assessed as Least Concern.
