A large proportion (41%) of the distribution of this species is in state forest, and so is subject to forestry activity (Doran 2000). Notably, a portion of key habitat allocated as protected area was removed recently, owing to procedural errors (Doran et al. 2001). Such forestry activities needs to be properly managed to minimise impacts (N. Doran pers. comm. 2009). In the remainder of its range the species is also subject to heavy pressure from agricultural activity on private land, for which no code or guidelines are in place (Doran 2000). Broad scale habitat degradation and changes in weather, water and drainage patterns due to climate change could become a major threat in the future (N. Doran pers. comm. 2009).
