Justification of Red List category
This species has a relatively small population size (estimated to number fewer than 2,000 mature individuals). There is currently no evidence for a continuing decline and its largest subpopulation (in Taiwan, China) is thought to be stable (slow declines are precautionarily suspected from its smaller population in the Philippines). Accordingly, its extinction risk is currently considered relatively low, however its small population size makes it vulnerable to future declines. Accordingly it is listed as Near Threatened.

Population size: 1250-2000 mature individuals

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 22,000 km2

Country endemic: no
