Justification of Red List category

This species has only been described in 2017 and there is limited information about its population size and trends. Its range and number of locations of occurrence are small, thus approaching the threshold for listing as threatened. In the future, climate change may likely lead to a range contraction, and thus the species is suspected to undergo declines in range size, habitat quality and subsequently population size. Overall, Tatamá Tapaculo approaches, but does not meet sufficient conditions for listing as threatened, and is thus considered Near Threatened.



Population size: 20000-49999

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 26,700 km2

Country endemic: Yes
