Justification of Red List category
This species is poorly known, and occurs within a very small range, suggesting that it has a small population. It is probably declining as a result of habitat loss, although it reportedly persists in secondary habitats, suggesting that it may not be imminently at risk, and consequently its habitat and population are not regarded as severely fragmented or restricted to a few locations. It is therefore considered Near Threatened, and should be carefully monitored.
