Justification of Red List category
This species occurs in a small range, in which suitable habitat is threatened by logging for illegal cultivation and cattle ranching, causing a slow population decline. The population is however not severely fragmented or restricted to a low number of locations, and hence it is evaluated as Near Threatened.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 3,600 km2

Country endemic: No
