Justification of Red List category
This species, the only one endemic to Honduras, qualifies as Endangered owing to its very small and severely fragmented range and population, both of which are suspected to be declining in response to habitat loss. The species may be uplisted if improved knowledge shows that its population is smaller than currently estimated, or if improved knowledge or a worsening in the threats faced by species indicate that the rate of decline is more rapid than currently suspected.

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 15,400 km2

Country endemic: Yes

Land-mass type - continent
