Justification of Red List category
A moderate to rapid population reduction is suspected based on an apparent reduction in the rate of reporting and the observation that the species may no longer occur on Narcondam Island. The rate of the reduction is highly uncertain, with the very rapid reductions from one analysis appearing unlikely, given the apparently similar proportion of observations reported from the majority of the speices's range over the time period in question. The population size is now suspected to exceed the threshold for listing as threatened under criterion C, it is suspected that there are considerably more than a thousand mature individuals in the largest subpopulation, and it is uncertain that the species is undergoing a continuing decline.
