Red List Status

Least Concern (LC)


Listed as Least Concern since, although its Extent of Occurrence, as currently known, is probably less than 20,000 km2, it is tolerant of a degree of habitat modification, it has a presumed large population, and it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
