Justification of Red List category
This species is suspected to have a very small population within a small range, in which habitat destruction is continuing and causing the population to decline. However, there is considerable uncertainty surrounding the population estimate. Moreover, despite moderately rapid rates of habitat destruction within the range, the species is not considered to occur at a limited number of locations. It therefore qualifies as Near Threatened. Further evidence regarding the population size and threats may warrant uplisting of the species in the near future.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 14,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes
