Justification of Red List category
This species has a small and fragmented population and range, which are continuing to decline rapidly as a result of habitat loss, and it therefore qualifies as Vulnerable (Collar et al. 1992). However, clarification of its range in southern Bahia may in due course result in its downlisting to Near Threatened.
