Only one locality known. It therefore meets the criteria for the IUCN category Critically Endangered based on the small area and decline in habitat quality, and the probable extremely small number of individuals. It may even be extinct. However, until several searches in its old locality and in similar habitat around have proved unsuccessful it must be considered Critically Endangered.
