Justification of Red List category
This species is confined to the island of Ghizo, where it is estimated to have a very small population comprising fewer than 1,000 mature individuals. The population is suspected to be stable and this species has proven relatively adaptable to habitat degradation. For this reason it is assessed as Vulnerable. However, if areas of remnant forest begin to be cleared, the population could decline quickly from an already low starting point and would be eligible for a higher threat category. 

Population size: 250-999, 500-750

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 80 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - oceanic island
Realm - Oceanic
IUCN Ecosystem -- Terrestrial biome
