Justification:
Little is known about this species. The typical subspecies was collected once in the forest Sakaraha, it has never been collected again. Whilst subspecies itampolensis was also only collected once near Itampolo. The combined ranges are likely to be very limited and extremely localized, which indicates a possible Vulnerable status. But further field work is required to establish the status of this taxon.
