Population justification: The total population is estimated to lie within the band 20,000-49,999 individuals (C. A. Bianchi in litt. 2006, 2007). The species's population density has been estimated to be 11.7 individuals / km2.
Trend justification: Given the rapid rate of deforestation within the species's restricted range, and its strong reliance on forest habitats it is suspected to be declining very rapidly (F. Olmos in litt. 2004).
