Justification of Red List category
A recent rediscovery and three subsequent records at different sites have led to this formerly Data Deficient species being re-evaluated (Collar et al.
1992). It is now classified as Near Threatened, because it is thought to have a moderately small population which is declining owing to habitat loss and fragmentation associated with infrastructure development. The known range is small, but it may well occur more widely. Further data may leads to its downlisting to Least Concern in future.
Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident):
Realm - Neotropical
