This species is assessed as Data Deficient because there is insufficient information on its distribution and population in order to choose an appropriate threat category. It is known from only two localities and has not been recorded recently. There is no reason to assume that it is not more widespread throughout Sumatra, and possibly Borneo, but this species is difficult to survey and adequate surveys have not been carried out for it.
Previously published Red List assessments:
1996 Lower Risk/least concern (LR/lc)
