Justification of Red List category
A re-assessment of the species's extent of occurrence using a Minimum Convex Polygon means it no longer meets the threshold for Endangered. The species does still occupy an area within which suitable habitat is severely fragmented, and it has recently been extirpated from at least two sites. Rapid declines are suspected in the species's range and population owing to continued habitat loss and degradation, and hence the species is now listed as Vulnerable.
