Largest subpopulation 400-530 - - -
Generation length (yrs) 4.6 - - -
Population justification:

The total population has been estimated to number 600-800 individuals by ABC (2011), which equates to c.400-530 mature individuals.

Trend justification: A rapid and on-going decline is suspected owing to rates of habitat loss.
