This species is considered Endangered because it has a very small range, being currently known from only five sites and appears to have been lost from parts of its former range, suggesting that the population and possibly the area of occupancy are declining. In this context, the species's rarity indicates that the population may well be very small and comprised of extremely small, fragmented subpopulations.
