Based on a model of future deforestation it is suspected that the population of this species will decline very rapidly over the next three generations, and it has therefore been uplisted to Endangered. It also has a small, declining range and population. However, it may in fact benefit from habitat degradation promoting secondary growth, and from abandonment of pasture that is occurring in parts of its range.

10 cm. Small, well marked tyrant flycatcher. The most striking feature is the rich chestnut-red hood (except small white throat). Hind neck band is grey/black and remaining upperparts are green, with coverts, tertials and secondaries fringed yellow. Below the hood is a narrow, white breast band, and the remainder of the underparts are bright yellow. Voice Call is an emphatic chick. Song probably consists of a short, rather harsh trilling prrrrt.
