Population Trend


Major Threats

The major threat is habitat loss due to urbanization and tourism development, as well as for agriculture.

Conservation Actions

It is unclear whether this species is represented in a protected area; clearly, though, habitat protection is urgently needed to ensure the persistence of this restricted-range species.

Red List Status
