Population justification: The global population size has apparently not been formally quantified, but the species is described as locally common at higher elevations, and its population may be in the region of 10,000 individuals, roughly equivalent to 6,600-6,700 mature individuals.

Trend justification: There are no data on population trends; however, the species is suspected to be in decline owing to trapping and habitat degradation.
