Streaky-breasted Jungle-flycatcher Eumyias additus


Justification of Red List Category
This species occupies a moderately small range, within which forest habitat has been cleared. It is not considered more threatened because it appears to be tolerant of secondary growth, and is therefore listed as Near Threatened.

Population justification
This is a poorly known species and no population estimates are available.

Trend justification
The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction.

Distribution and population

Rhinomyias addita is restricted to Buru, Indonesia, where it is a relatively widespread and common upland species. Threats to the species are not severe, but it is restricted to a small range.


It inhabits lowland and montane forest at 500-1,500 m, having been described as a rare bird of the higher mountain regions. It was found to be moderately common in logged and primary forest inland at Fogi.


Large parts of Buru's coastal lowlands have been disturbed and selectively logged, and others are targeted for conversion.

Conservation actions

Conservation Actions Underway
None are known.

Conservation Actions Proposed
Study the species habitat preferences and determine its reliance on forest habitats. Generate appropriate population estimates based upon the findings and reassess its status accordingly. If necessary devise appropriate conservation responses. Effectively protect significant areas of suitable forest at key sites, in both strictly protected areas and community-led multiple use areas.
