Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range, in which it is restricted to a few locations, and its population is in decline owing to ongoing and locally severe deforestation. It is therefore considered Vulnerable. Improvements in our knowledge of the species's distribution could make the species eligible for downlisting in the future; however, further research is required into the rate of forest loss in its range and thus the likely rate of population decline.

Population size: unknown

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 14,700 km2
