Justification of Red List category
This newly-split kingfisher is restricted to a single, small island. Its single subpopulation is thought to be small, and may be experiencing limited habitat loss but cannot yet be inferred to be undergoing a continuing decline. It has therefore been slcassified as Near Threatened. If there is enough evidence to infer a slow decline owing to on-going habitat loss and degradation, it could warrant listing as Endangered.

Population size:

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 150 km2

Country endemic: Yes
