Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small range, in which the area and quality of optimal habitats are in decline, and is thought to have a small population, which is suspected to be in decline owing to habitat loss and degradation, persecution and predation. However, it does not qualify as threatened because its population is not severely fragmented or restricted to 10 locations or less, and there are insufficient data available on its population size and subpopulation structure. For these reasons the species is listed as Near Threatened.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 930 km2

Country endemic: Yes

IUCN Ecosystem -- Terrestrial biome
Land-mass type - oceanic island
