Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Near Threatened because it has an extremely small range, and its population may be both moderately small and continually declining owing to habitat loss, although it does tolerate degraded forest. Information is urgently required on the status and trends of habitat on Enganno, the intensity of trapping pressures, and this species's population size and trends. Such new information may show that it warrants listing in a threatened category.
