Justification of Red List category
Given the small range and relative mobility of this species, it is suspected to have a small population size (in a single subpopulation) that is suspected to be declining moderately rapidly as a result of ongoing habitat loss and degradation creeping up hill-slopes into its altitudinal range. It is consequently listed as Near Threatened.

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 314,000 km2
