Justification of Red List category
This species is only known from four locations, one of which is a tiny patch of highly threatened habitat. However, it appears to tolerate disturbed habitats, and is apparently not in active decline (Collar et al. 1992). It currently qualifies as Vulnerable, but if future surveys reveal populations occurring at additional surrounding sites, it may qualify for downlisting.

Population size: 1500-7000

Population trend: Stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 14,500 km2

Country endemic: Yes

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