Cundinamarca Antpitta Grallaria kaestneri is currently listed as Vulnerable under criterion D2, because it occupies fewer than six locations.
Information provided by O. Cortes (in litt. 2009), suggests that the species’s population is not stable, as previously thought, but is actually declining due to habitat loss. The species’s Extent of Occurrence (EOO) is estimated to be 450 km2, thus if continuing declines are observed, inferred or projected in the EOO, Area of Occupancy, area, extent and/or quality of its habitat, number of locations or sub-populations, or number of mature individuals, the species would be eligible for uplisting to Endangered under criterion B1a+b.
Comments are invited on this possible category change, particularly information on the likely population size, the current trend over 11 years (estimate of three generations) and the severity of threats.
