Justification of Red List category
This species was thought to be declining rapidly as a result of the wholesale destruction of its cerrado habitats. However, unlike many other cerrado species, it is not restricted to the upland habitats of the Planalto Central, and also occurs in (less threatened) cerrado enclaves in the Amazon. As a result, its population is now thought to be declining less rapidly than previously believed, and consequently it is classified as Near Threatened.
