Justification of Red List category
Habitat is probably contiguous between the two areas from which this species is known. The lack of records in these intervening areas is almost certainly indicative of the paucity of field studies. Even including these areas of presumed occurrence, the species is suspected to have a very small population size, which is likely declining as a result of habitat loss. Consequently it qualifies as Endangered.
