This species has a moderately small range within which moderately rapid declines are occurring, owing to on-going loss and clearance of lowland forest. As a result it is classified as Near Threatened.

Ficedula hypoleuca (Sibley and Monroe 1990, 1993) was split by Sætre et al. (2001) into F. hypoleuca and F. speculigera but this treatment is not followed by the BirdLife Taxonomic Working Group because Sætre et al. (2001) fail to compare speculigera with the geographically and morphologically intermediate form iberiae. Upon inspection of published literature and museum specimens we find that iberiae appears to be more closely allied to speculigera than hypoleuca and overall these forms do not warrant specific status.
