Population justification: The population size of this taxon has not been quantified, but it is described as uncommon and local.

Trend justification: Declines are likely to be occurring as a result of habitat loss throughout the species's range, although these may not be severe as the species may persist in logged and secondary habitats, thus a slow to moderate population decline is suspected overall.
