Justification of Red List category
This species has declined in range and numbers and now has a small global population restricted to a very small known range at six fragmented locations (Joseph 2004). As a result it is considered Endangered, but further survey effort may reveal that it occurs across a wider area of suitable habitat. If this is the case it may warrant downlisting in the future.

Population size: 1500-7000

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 2,800 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Realm - Neotropical
IUCN Ecosystem -- Terrestrial biome
