Long-tailed Woodnymph Thalurania watertonii is listed as Near Threatened under criterion B1a+b(i,ii,iii,iv,v) on the basis that it was thought to have a moderately small range within which its habitat is severely fragmented and its population is suspected to be declining owing to habitat loss. The species’s Extent of Occurrence has now been updated and is estimated at 34,800 km2, which no longer approaches the threshold for Vulnerable under the B1 criterion. This suggests that the species is eligible for downlisting to Least Concern.
