Justification of Red List category
This species has a highly disjunct and poorly understood range. It is very close to qualifying as Endangered, because the known range is very small and presumably declining (with possibly some local extirpations) in response to continuing habitat loss (Collar et al. 1992). However, it has been recorded at more than five locations and exhibits some habitat tolerance. It is therefore listed as Vulnerable.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 99,700 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - continent
