Justification of Red List category
This species is listed as Critically Endangered because it is has a very small population on a single small island and an analysis has indicated a declining population. Should surveys continue to indicate a stable or increasing trend, the species may be downlisted to a lower category of threat in the future. Nevertheless, any potential change in land management within this tiny range could prove catastrophic for the species.
