Occurring over a wide range (EOO 20 000 km²), known from over 20 large subpopulations. Agriculture, urban expansion and alien plant invasion have caused a loss of over 60% of its habitat, however this loss has taken place over the past 80 years, much longer than three generations (generation length less than five years).
