Red List Category
This species is poorly-known and is known to science only from two specimens, collected in 1882. Based on reports from local people, it is believed to remain extant, but it may have a very small population. It is inferred to be declining based on a decline in the extent of its forest habitat. It is therefore classified as Critically Endangered.
