Justification of Red List category
This species's known range remains very small, within which suitable habitat is severely fragmented, and it has recently been extirpated from at least two sites, with rapid declines suspected in the species's range and population owing to continued habitat loss and degradation. For these reasons it qualifies as Endangered.
