Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be locally not uncommon in Vietnam, rare in China and uncommon and very local in Thailand (Madge and Burn 1993).

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to presumably ongoing habitat destruction on Hainan (Madge and Burn 1993).
