Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Near Threatened because it has a small and declining population owing to losses of mature old-growth forest through continuing logging and forest conversion. Population declines are inferred to approach the threshold for Vulnerable (under criterion C1) and if declines are found to be greater than currently estimated it may warrant uplisting.

Country endemic: Yes
