Justification of Red List category
This newly split and forest-associated species is listed as Near Threatened because it is assumed to be undergoing a moderately rapid population decline owing to the extensive loss of lowland forests from large areas of the Sundaic lowlands, and it may be impacted by trade. It is not considered more threatened because it can use secondary and modified habitats and also occurs in (less threatened) lower montane forest.

Population size: unknown

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 3,540,000 km2

Country endemic: no
