Justification
Listed as Least Concern as although the species is not common and its habitat continues to decline in the face of ongoing forest loss in the lowlands of Borneo, the species shows some adaptability to disturbed environments, and it is unlikely that past or future declines over 10 years would not be at a rate that would warrant listing in a threatened category.
