Justification
This species is listed as Near Threatened because it has a restricted extent of occurrence and very small number of populations (< 10 locations). The species is close to being Vulnerable using D criteria, and more information is needed on area of occupancy. There are currently no imminent threats that are causing a continuing decline in the extent of occurrence, area of occupancy, or extent or quality of its habitat - but potential future threats could be cause for concern.
