Justification of Red List category
This species is certainly rare and has not been found during survey work in Cameroon over the past few years. However, the reasons for its rarity are unclear and there may be specific habitat requirements, as yet unknown, limiting its distribution. The population is likely to be small and probably declining, owing to habitat loss and/or alteration, and it is therefore classified as Endangered.
250-999 mature individuals
