Justification
Known from one collection made in 1890 in Bizana and not collected since. A large area (500 km²) in and around Bizana has been transformed for subsistence agriculture and what habitat remains between ploughed areas has been severely degraded by overgrazing and trampling. Searches failed to relocated this species and it is therefore considered extinct.
