Justification of Red List Category
Although this species may have a restricted range, it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
The global population size has not been quantified, but is believed to be large as the species is described as common in at least parts of its range (Morcombe 2000).
The population is suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats.
This species occurs in the rainforests of the Clarke Range in central-eastern Queensland, Australia. Most of its range is included in some form of conservation reserve.
This species is found in rainforest. Occasionally it visits Eucalyptus forests, woodlands and gardens.
There are no obvious threats (Garnett 1992).
