Justification of Red List category
The species is likely declining as a result of ongoing habitat loss. However, accurately reflecting such declines and the extinction risk of the species is not possible given current evidence, and it could potentially fall into any of the categories between Least Concern and Critically Endangered. Therefore, it has been reassessed here as Data Deficient, and further research to obtain estimates of population size and trend are urgently needed.
