Redlisted as Near Threatened
" A population reduction of nearly 30% is estimated based on a 26% reduction in range (EOO) and 29% habitat loss due to alien plant invasion, afforestation, agriculture and urban expansion in the past 60 years (generation length 20 years). Combined land transformation and climate change models predict a further population reduction of up to 50% by 2025 (Bomhard et al. 2005), but this is an extreme scenario, and as this species is still common in mountainous areas, a future population reduction of 20-30% is considered more realistic."
