Justification
A population reduction of 20% due to urban expansion has been observed over the past 10 years (one generation). EOO and AOO<1000 km², known to occur at nine locations, but there is likely to be up to 20 locations as parts of the range is not well explored. Ongoing habitat loss to urban development is causing a continuing decline and fragmentation of subpopulations.
