Justification of Red List category
This recently recognised species is believed to have a small and declining population, although it is not as scarce as previously reported. Increased settlement has led to increased pressure on natural resources, and planned development projects could severely affect suitable habitat within its very small range, although its population is not regarded as severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations, hence it is classified as Near Threatened.

Population size: Unknown mature individuals

Population trend: Decreasing

Distribution size (breeding/resident): 1,100 km2
