Justification of Red List category
This newly-split species has a very small known range within which it appears to be patchily distributed and uncommon. It is therefore thought to have a small population, and for this reason has been classified as Vulnerable. The species occurs within a well-protected national park and is not currently thought to be subject to any imminent threats, however any evidence of a decline may result in its uplisting to a higher threat category.

Population size: 250-999

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 4,200 km2

Country endemic: Yes
