Justification of Red List category

This species has a very restricted range. Large fires since 2001 have substantially reduced the population in the past, and although there has been a slow increase in numbers in the last three generations, a continuing decline in habitat quality and mature individuals is projected in the next three generations as a result of fire. As a result, the species is classified as Endangered.
