Justification of Red List category
This newly-split species is categorised as Vulnerable because its population is estimated to be small and confined to very small subpopulations, and inferred to be declining owing to the loss and degradation of its lowland forest habitat, and perhaps also 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): 51,100 km2

Country endemic: Yes
