Justification of Red List category
This species qualifies as Endangered because it has a very small range, being known from just two mountains, where on-going forest destruction is reducing the extent, area and quality of habitat, and inevitably leading to a decline in numbers. It appears to be exceedingly rare on one of the mountains and, if there are no further records in the near future, it should be considered confined to one location and may require uplisting to Critically Endangered.
600-1700 mature individuals
