Justification of Red List category

This newly-split species probably has a very small population and is inferred to be undergoing a continuing decline in its population based on a decline in the extent of its forest habitat. It is therefore classified as Endangered. If its population is found to be larger than currently suspected, it may be eligible for downlisting to a lower threat category.

Population size: 600-1700

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,700 km2

Country endemic: Yes
