stable

Major Threats

None are known.

Conservation Actions

Its distribution needs to be better documented. It occurs in Crater Wildlife management Area, and in some other protected areas.

Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)

Rationale

Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.

Taxonomic Notes

This form is certainly a complex of closely related species (S. Richards pers. comm.).
