This species has been uplisted from Near Threatened following evidence that it is likely to be declining much more rapidly than previously thought. It is listed as Endangered because it is suspected to be undergoing a very rapid population decline, caused primarily by heavy trapping pressure, as well as habitat loss in some areas. Urgent investigation is needed to improve understanding of this species's status and develop effective conservation interventions.
