Justification of Red List category
Habitat is probably contiguous between the two areas from which this species is known. The lack of records in these intervening areas is almost certainly indicative of the paucity of field studies. Even including these areas of presumed occurrence, the species has a very small range in which habitat is being lost, and consequently it qualifies as Endangered.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 4,100 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - continent
Realm - Neotropical
