Justification of Red List category
This recently-split species qualifies as Near Threatened because, although it is estimated to have a very small range and small population, which are both in on-going decline owing to habitat loss and degradation, it is not severely fragmented and likely has two subpopulations, the larger of which exceeds the threshold that would otherwise imply its listing as Vulnerable.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 13,800 km2

Country endemic: Yes
