Justification of Red List category
Although this species has a very small global range, it does not qualify as Vulnerable under the range size criterion because the population and range size appear to be stable. The population size has been crudely estimated and falls outside the threshold for listing as Vulnerable (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

Population size:

Population trend: Increasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 260 km2

Country endemic: Yes
