Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range and population occurring at a few isolated locations. Virtually no habitat remains outside of the reserves in which it occurs, and most of these are not effectively protected. Fragmentation and continuing habitat loss are so extensive within its range that the suspected rapid population decline qualifies it as Vulnerable.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 189,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - continent
Realm - Neotropical
IUCN Ecosystem -- Freshwater biome
IUCN Ecosystem -- Terrestrial biome
