Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small area of occupancy, which is declining, largely as a result of encroachment of invasive plant species. However, some of its subpopulations are too large for it to be considered severely fragmented; the most serious plausible threats would not affect a large enough area of habitat for the species to have ten or fewer locations and the species is not undergoing extreme fluctuations. For these reasons, the species is listed as Near Threatened.

Population trend: Decreasing
