Justification of Red List category
This newly-split species is not yet well known but is thought to be restricted to a single island, where it may have a single, moderately small subpopulation. It seems to show a tolerance for disturbed and degraded habitats, and as such is not currently inferred to be in continuing decline. For these reasons it has been classified as Near Threatened. Better knowledge of its population size and structure and ability to persist in modified habitats may lead to a reclassification of its status.

Population size: 2500-9999 mature individuals

Population trend: stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 2,200 km2

Country endemic: no
