Justification of Red List category
This recently-split pigeon is thought to have a very small population, likely to include fewer than 2,500 mature individuals, which probably forms a single subpopulation that is inferred to be in continuing decline owing to illegal poaching. It is therefore classified as Endangered.

Population size: 1000-2499

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 80 km2

Country endemic: Yes
