Justification of Red List category
This species is currently known from just a single location, rendering it susceptible to human impacts. It is therefore classified as Vulnerable. However, given its tolerance of secondary habitats it is unlikely that its population is declining, and further survey effort may reveal that it is more widespread. If this is confirmed it will warrant downlisting to Near Threatened.

Population size: 1500-7000

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,100 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - continent
