Justification of Red List category
This newly-split species has a small range and there have been relatively few recent records, therefore its total population is estimated to be small. It is thought that all subpopulations are likely to be very small, and the species inferred to be undergoing a continuing population decline owing to habitat and loss and degradation, driven primarily by agricultural expansion, logging, mining and urban development. For these reasons it has been classified as Vulnerable.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 49,500 km2

Country endemic: Yes
