Justification of Red List category
This newly-split kingfisher is restricted to a small island group, where it is inferred to have a small population, the majority, but not all, of which forms one subpopulation, and it is in ongoing decline owing to habitat loss and degradation. It is therefore classfied as Near Threatened. If the species is found to rely on primary forest, it may be eligible for listing under a higher threat category.

Population size: 2500-9999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 13,300 km2

Country endemic: Yes
