Red List Category
The species is listed as Critically Endangered because it has a very small population which, in the past decade, has experienced a decline of >90% in both of its strongholds, the Riverina of New South Wales and north-central Victoria, due to cultivation, and inappropriate grazing of natural grassland and climatic events.
