Justification of Red List category
This species is known from forest habitats above 700 m on Mindoro and hence it is assumed to have a very small global range which probably supports a moderately small population. Declines are suspected owing to the on-going clearance of forest habitats, but the species is not restricted to a few locations and its habitat is not regarded as severely fragmented, thus the species is classified as Near Threatened.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 2,300 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - shelf island
