Justification of Red List category
This species is evaluated as Least Concern. It was thought to have a very large range, however, recent mapping of its range shows that it is much smaller than previously thought. Its population is thought to be in decline owing to on-going habitat destruction and fragmentation. If this information is confirmed, and the extent of occurrence (EOO) of this species is <20,000 km2, it is inferred to be in continuing decline owing to habitat loss, and it is found at ≤10 locations or severely fragmented, it would warrant uplisting to Vulnerable.

Population size:

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 24,800 km2

Country endemic: Yes
