Justification of Red List category
The small population of this poorly-known parrot occupies a small range (at few locations), which is decreasing in size and degrading in quality as a result of habitat loss, at least at the lower fringes of its altitudinal distribution. The population is suspected to be declining, and it therefore meets the threshold for Vulnerable status.

Population size: 2500-9999 mature individuals

Population trend: Decreasing

Distribution size (breeding/resident): 1,400 km2

Country endemic: Yes
