Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be common in Gabon and rare or uncommon elsewhere (del Hoyo et al. 1997).

Trend justification:

The species is tentatively assessed as being in decline due to habitat loss per Tracewski et al. (2016).
