Justification of Red List category
This newly-split species is restricted to four small islands, on which all its subpopulations are likely to be small. Potential threats include habitat loss owing to pressure from urban development, livestock farming and wood-cutting, and predation by invasive species, however there are not currently known to be any declines in the population or the species’s habitat. It has therefore been listed as Near Threatened, but any evidence of continuing declines would likely see this species being uplisted to a higher category of threat.

Population size: 1000-2499

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes
