Justification of Red List category
The species is becoming increasingly targeted by the Asian Songbird Trade, especially on Sumatra, where population declines are accelerating. However, with the data currently available, the rate of decline is difficult to determine. As considerable numbers of individuals may persist in the less accessible parts of northern Sumatra and on Borneo, the species is therefore tentatively classified as Near Threatened.

Population size: unknown
