Justification
This species is found across most of the Central Pacific, from Tuamotu Archipelago in the French Polynesia, on the Cook Islands and Marshall Islands to the Wake Islands and Guam in the North, as well as the Solomon Islands. Although this species has a fairly wide range in the central Pacific, and is not known to have any major threats, its extreme scarcity indicates a need for further research into abundance and is is therefore classified as Data Deficient.
