Justification of Red List category
This species has a small occupied range, in which it is restricted to fewer than 10 locations, and its habitat is declining as it is cleared to make way for cultivation. A re-assessment of its extent of occurrence using a Minimum Convex Polygon means the species does not approach the threshold for Vulnerable based on this measure of range size, but its area of occupancy may approach the threshold for Vulnerable and hence the species is now listed as Near Threatened.

Population size: unknown

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 65,600 km2

Country endemic: No

Realm - Indomalayan
IUCN Ecosystem -- Terrestrial biome
