Justification of Red List category
This species is suspected to have a small population size, with small subpopulations that are isolated due to the destruction and fragmentation of its forest habitat. It appears to have disappeared from some localities and so the population size is inferred to be declining. It is likely to have a small area of occupancy that is declining owing to deforestation. The number of locations is likely to be small, but greater than ten, and the species's population is fragmented, but not severely so. For these reasons, the species is listed as Near Threatened.

Population size:

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 142,000 km2
