Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The threats to this species are not well known. However, as it is present in farmbush, it appears to be able to tolerate some habitat disturbance and is presumed to have no major threats. It is used as a subsistence food, although the impact of this collection on populations is not known.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: It is probably present in several protected areas, including the Mount Nimba Reserve.

Errata [top]
