Justification of Red List category
This species is suspected to have undergone a moderately large population reduction over the last decade, which is suspected to continue over the next decade as a result of hydroelectricity development and consequent habitat loss and degradation. However, the past and future population reductions are not thought to be large enough to meet the thresholds for Vulnerable under Criterion A. For these reasons, the species is listed as Near Threatened.
