Justification of Red List category
This species has been downlisted to Endangered because it has been found to occupy a larger range than previously thought; however, its range remains very small, severely fragmented and in on-going decline owing to habitat loss and degradation. caused primarily by beachfront development. Its habitat remains imminently threatened by more tourist developments. A review of this species's taxonomy is expected in the near future.
