Although information on this species
is patchy, it is assumed to have a small population and to be undergoing a
decline, given that it is dwindling or extirpated throughout much of its
range. It therefore qualifies as Vulnerable.
It appears particularly sensitive to
disturbance, usually leaving areas with logging or planting activities
within days of occurrence, and not re-inhabiting even five years after the
cessation of human activity6. The reasons for this may
relate to changes in forest characteristics (e.g. leaf-litter,
food-resources), structure (e.g. openness) or invasion by ground predators
(especially mongoose Herpestes auropunctatus)6.
None is known.

range to assess its distribution, population numbers and conservation
