Justification of Red List category
This newly-split kingfisher is largely restricted to rivers in lowland forest and, as such, is suspected to be undergoing a moderately rapid and continuing population decline as a result of significant losses in the extent of this habitat throughout its range. It is therefore classified as Near Threatened.
