Justification of Red List category
This newly-split species is still very poorly-known owing to historical confusion over its identification. There is insufficient information on its distribution, threats and likely population trend for a robust assessment of its Red List status against the IUCN criteria, and it has therefore been listed as Data Deficient until more is known.

Population size:

Population trend: Unknown

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 730,000 km2

Country endemic: No
