Family: Trochilidae (Hummingbirds)
Authority: Wetmore & Phelps, Jr., 1952
Red List Category
This newly-split and poorly-known species has a very small range and is presumed to have a small population, restricted to a number of very small subpopulations, which are inferred to be declining as a variety of threats including narcotics cultivation, uncontrolled colonisation, cattle-ranching and mineral exploitation cause the loss and fragmentation of its high altitude habitat. It is therefore listed as Vulnerable, but further information on population size, subpopulation structure, population trends and threats could lead to a further reclassification.
