Population justification: The species is described as uncommon to locally fairly common (Schulenberg and Kirwan 2020). Based on the population density of a congener (G. cyanescens in Peru: 6 mature individuals/km2; Santini et al. 2018), and assuming that only 25% of the toal forested area within the range is occupied to account for the species's localised occurrence, the population size may be 42,000 mature individuals. This number however requires confirmation.

Trend justification: Even though its preference for forest edges, treefall gaps and moderately disturbed forested areas that suggest the species may benefit from low levels of deforestation at least on the short-term, it is threatened by the loss and fragmentation of its habitat (Schulenberg and Kirwan 2020). Throughout the range, tree cover is lost at a rate of 3% over three generations (13.5 years; Global Forest Watch 2021, using Hansen et al. [2013] data and methods disclosed therein). Population declines are therefore unlikely to exceed 10% over three generations.
