Justification
This species is poorly known being quite rare and known only from a handful of specimens; it has not been recorded at all in Sabah for some 20 years. Although it almost certainly has undergone declines in its lowland habitat, in the absence of information on its habitat preferences, this species is provisionally listed as Data Deficient.
