Although the extent of occurrence and area of occupancy are well within the threshold for Endangered, and although there is a degree of fragmentation between known subpopulations, there does not appear to be enough specific evidence of decline, hence the species is listed as Near Threatened (almost qualifies as threatened under criteria B1a+2a). This may change in the future, so monitoring is required.
