Red List Status
Least Concern (LC)
Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence is probably less than 20,000 km2, it is common and adaptable with a presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
