Justification of Red List category
This species is only known from a restricted area. It occurs at a low density and has highly specific habitat requirements, so it probably has a very small population. It is feared that habitat degradation is ongoing slowly within its very small range, so the population is suspected to be declining. For these reasons it is listed as Endangered.
