Justification of Red List category
This newly-split grebe has recently become very localised in parts of its range, and is suspected to be undergoing moderately rapid population declines owing to the loss and degradation of wetland habitat, and the impact of invasive species. It is therefore classified as Near Threatened, but better trend data and understanding of threats may lead to a further reclassification of its status.

Population size: unknown

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 2,960,000 km2

Country endemic: No
