Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Vulnerable because it has a small population, which is likely to be in decline owing to habitat conversion and degradation within its range. If more accurate estimates show the total population or each of its subpopulations numbers fewer than 250 mature individuals, or research indicates that all individuals in fact belong to the same subpopulation, the species would warrant uplisting to Endangered.

Population size: 250-999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 550 km2

Country endemic: Yes
