This species qualifies as Endangered as it is known from only a few sites and is therefore likely to have a very small and declining range owing to forest destruction. Surveys are required to confirm whether the total population is lower than inferred and whether the species is experiencing serious declines in the face of significant habitat loss, in which case it may qualify as Critically Endangered.
