Justification of Red List category
This recently-split species is thought to have a moderately small population (approaching as few as 10,000 mature individuals), forming a single subpopulation, which is inferred to be undergoing moderately rapid declines owing to trapping pressure and habitat loss. It has therefore been classified as Near Threatened, but further information on population size, trends and threats may lead to a re-evaluation of its status.

Population size: 10000-19999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 25,500 km2

Country endemic: Yes
