Justification of Red List category
This newly-split woodpecker appears to be very rare within its small range, and the total population is therefore thought to be very small. Habitat within its range has suffered extensive conversion and fragmentation, therefore a continuing population decline is inferred. For these reasons it has been classified as Endangered.

Population size: 1000-2499

Population trend: Decreasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 62,000 km2

Country endemic: Yes
