Justification of Red List category
Although this species may have a restricted range, this extends over a much greater area than thresholds for listing as threatened and while the occupied area within this range has not been quantified, the area of suitable habitat present also exceeds thresholds. A slow population decline is suspected due to the current rate of forest cover loss within the range. The population size has not been quantified, but is not believed to be small given reported abundance in parts of the range. For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
