Justification of Red List category
This species is thought to have a small, restricted population. However, the population size is uncertain due to a lack of any estimate of density or extent of confirmed occurrence, and if the reported extension of the range into China is confirmed then the population size could be larger than previously thought. In addition, threats to the species appear minimal at present, based on remotely-sensed rates of forest cover loss, hence the population is suspected to be stable. On the basis that the population may still be very small, and is very uncertain, it is assessed here as Near Threatened. An improved population estimate is needed. If there is reason to suspect the population exceeds 1,000 mature individuals, and the assumption of a stable population is reasonable, then the species may warrant downlisting in the future.

Population size: 500-2500

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 4,800 km2
