Justification of Red List category
This species is categorised as Vulnerable because its population is estimated to be smaller than 10,000 mature individuals, it is thought to have a single subpopulation, and it is inferred to be declining, based on its disappearance from parts of its range, presumably due to hunting pressure. However, there are few quantitative data and new information may lead to its reclassification.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 74,800 km2

Country endemic: Yes
