Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Near Threatened. It has a small range, within which it is found at a relatively limited number of locations and its habitat is declining both in area and quality as a result of deforestation; hence it almost meets the requirements for listing as threatened under criterion B1ab(ii,iii,v). If new data shows that it is found at fewer than 10 locations it would warrant uplisting to Vulnerable.
