Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range which is threatened by commercial logging, the threat of which may be exacerbated by improvements to a road to the area. However, the species is apparently able to persist in small forest areas and in secondary forest, and so may be resilient to some degree to any such habitat degradation. The range is not yet severely fragmented or restricted to few locations. For these reasons, the species is classified as Near Threatened.
