Justification of Red List category
This species has a very small population restricted to montane cloud forests of southern Ecuador and adjacent northern Peru. It is highly sensitive to the fragmentation and degradation of its habitat, and re-surveys of known sites suggest that the population is undergoing rapid to very rapid declines. The species is therefore assessed as Endangered.
