This species has a very large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). Despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, the decline is not believed to be sufficiently rapid to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

In Collar et al. (1992, 1994), A. dorbignyi (Sibley and Monroe 1990, 1993) was split into A. dorbignyi, A. huancavelicae (including A. usheri, a form previously considered specifically distinct in Collar and Andrew 1988) and A. arequipae following Fjeldså and Schulenberg (unpublished manuscript). However, evidence for the separate status of A. huancavelicae and A. arequipae was considered insufficient for them to be recognised by Remsen (2003) and Remsen et al. (2005), and thus dorbignyi, huancavelicae and arequipae have subsequently been lumped back into A. dorbignyi following Sibley and Monroe (1990, 1993).
