Based on a model of future deforestation in the Amazon basin, and its susceptibility to fragmentation and disturbance, it is suspected that the population of this species will decline by 25-30% over the next three generations, and it has therefore been uplisted to Near Threatened.

16-18 cm. Medium-sized, mainly brown spinetail. Brown upperparts with paler underparts; a grey throat with blackish feathers; crown, wings and tail are rufous, with upper back and shoulder a dull brown colour. Similar spp. S. moesta also has a chestnut crown, but it does not extend to the forehead as in S. cabanisi; throat appears more barred in S. cabanisi due to whitish feather margins. Hints Usually found in pairs. Voice A low, nasal nyap.
Conservation Actions Underway
None is known.
Conservation Actions ProposedExpand the protected area network to effectively protect IBAs. Effectively resource and manage existing and new protected areas, utilising emerging opportunities to finance protected area management with the joint aims of reducing carbon emissions and maximizing biodiversity conservation. Conservation on private lands, through expanding market pressures for sound land management and preventing forest clearance on lands unsuitable for agriculture, is also essential (Soares-Filho et al. 2006).
