Population justification: Population estimate = 2.1-8.0 individuals/km2 x 360 km2 (20% EOO) = 756-2,880, i.e. probably best placed in the band 1,000-2,499 individuals (density range is lowest to lower quartile of six estimates for three species of Neopelma and Tyranneutes in the BirdLife Population Densities Spreadsheet).

Trend justification: A moderate and on-going population decline is suspected on the basis of habitat destruction and fragmentation. It is projected to lose over 70% of current distribution due to climate change (Anciães and Peterson 2006).
