Justification of Red List category
This species is poorly known. It has a relatively small distribution confined to the montane and remote forests of northern Sulawesi. The population size has not been quantified (an endeavour in part hampered by its exact distribution remaining unelucidated); however, it is considered unlikely to be below 10,000 mature individuals. Moreover, while forest loss is an ongoing threat, it is not currently occurring on a scale or at a rate where the species is believed to be in decline. For these reasons, it is assessed as Least Concern.

Population size: unknown

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 15,300 km2
