Population justification: Although locally common, the species occupies a restricted range and as a consequence its total population size may not be large. It is likely to number between 10,000-19,999 individuals, which roughly equates to 6,667-13,333 mature individuals, rounded here to 6,000-15,000 mature individuals.

Trend justification: The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction.
