Justification of Red List category
This species has a small range, with recent records from only seven locations. Significant areas of habitat remain, but it is likely to be declining rapidly in response to agricultural conversion, especially for shade coffee plantations. It is therefore listed as Endangered. However, if future studies reveal that it is able to survive in degraded habitats, it may qualify for downlisting to Vulnerable.

Population size: 1500-7000

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 2,700 km2

Country endemic: Yes

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