This species is listed as Near Threatened because it has a moderately small range in which it is threatened by habitat clearance and degradation. Any evidence that it has a small, declining range might qualify this species for uplisting to a higher threat category. Conversely, if it proves to have a larger range than currently confirmed, it may warrant downlisting to Least Concern.
