Justification of Red List category
This enigmatic babbler, known only from a type-specimen of uncertain provenance, is classified as Data Deficient. Although it has probably declined owing to the recent lowland deforestation in Kalimantan, it is impossible to accurately assess its range or population size. Given the inconspicuous nature of the species and the dearth of fieldwork targeted at rediscovering it, hopes remain high that it might be refound.
