Population justification: The global population size has not been quantified, but the species is reported to be commonest in the south of its range (especially Tasmania) and scarce in the north (Flegg and Madge 1995).

Trend justification: This population is estimated to be in decline following decreases owing to habitat loss and degradation (del Hoyo et al. 2006).
