Justification of Red List category
Iberian Green Woodpecker is estimated to be undergoing a moderately rapid decline in Spain, which holds the vast majority of the population. The rate of this decline may have reduced slightly, but following a revision to the species's generation length the rate of this decline does not approach the thresholds for listing as threatened, and would not have done so previously. As a result, the species has been reassessed as Least Concern, as a change based on revised species information.

Population size: 488000-938000 mature individuals

Population trend: decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 729,000 km2
