Although this species is threatened by habitat conversion, it has a range that extends from Columbia to Peru. It appears to be naturally rare, but there are few data available on recent trends or population size. Because of the uncertainty of this species` status throughout its broad range, we list this species as Data Deficient. Historic, or current observations of this species would help inform its status and trends. We strongly recommend surveys for this species in historic localities and in suitable habitat throughout its range.
