Inambari Woodcreeper Lepidocolaptes fatimalimae


Justification of Red List Category
This recently-described species has has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (extent of occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and the species is therefore not thought to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

Trend justification
The Inambari area of endemism is considered one of the least disturbed parts of Amazonia, and the species shows some tolerance of habitat disturbance (Rodrigues et al. 2013). The population trend is therefore thought to be stable.

Distribution and population

Lepidocolaptes fatimalimae is found in eastern Peru and into north and central Bolivia. It may also occur in western Brazil south of the Amazon River (Rodrigues et al. 2013).
