This species is known only from three locations and the area of occupancy is presumed to be less than 20 km2. The population size seems to be quite small, and the distribution range is fragmented. The habitat is in good condition and under protection and there are currently no major threats affecting this species. However, stochastic events like wildfire or volcanic eruptions could easily destroy all of the fragmented subpopulations of this species. Hence it is assessed as Near Threatened.
