Justification of Red List category
This species is classified as Vulnerable because it has a very small range. It is restricted to two mountain ranges on one island, and, although it has apparently adapted to non-native habitats, it remains at risk from the effects of exotic taxa, especially the possible introduction of disease-carrying mosquitoes capable of tolerating the cooler climate at high altitudes.

Population size: 13000-40000

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 1,100 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - oceanic island
