The population status of this species is unknown.

Population Trend


Major Threats

This species might be experiencing detrimental effects of the current management plan of Namdapha National Park, which is largely determined by the requirements of the large mammal fauna. It might also possibly be threatened by invasive alien plant species (Mikania sp. and Lantana camara).

Conservation Actions

One of its known localities is within Namdapha National Park.
