Justification of Red List category
This species is suspected to be undergoing a very rapid decline as a result of extensive habitat loss which has fragmented its habitat. Its population is potentially fragmented into small subpopulations but the species is very rarely recorded, and is poorly known. Therefore its population size could be potentially smaller and the species may warrant uplisting in the future.

Population size: 250-2499

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 142,000 km2

Country endemic: No
